The Rhode Island teacher shortage is growing due to increasing retirements and too few new teachers to fill the open positions. WPRI reports that this year, nearly 10% of Providence teachers left their teaching positions, causing major disturbances in student learning. Students are greatly disadvantaged when they do not have a fully qualified, certified teacher in the classroom.
In April 2021, Frontline Education surveyed 1,200 district leaders to discover that two out of three respondents reported having teacher shortages in their schools. This is a record high since launching the survey in 2015.
