South Carolina teacher vacancies are growing year over year. CERRA’s annual report states, “South Carolina districts reported 699 certified teaching/service positions still vacant at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year. This number signifies a 26% increase (~143 positions) compared to data reported for 2019-20 and a 12.5% jump (~78 positions) from 2018-19.” Every year, fewer students have access to the certified teachers they deserve.
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.
