The number of teachers acquiring certifications versus the number who begin teaching the following year is steadily decreasing according to data from the Texas Education Agency. Though over 24,000 teachers were certified in 2019, less than 20,000 began teaching, while a large majority of experienced educators quit or retired with the challenges of virtual learning. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 570 teacher vacancies plus 8,697 under-qualified teachers in Texas during the 2021-22 school year.
Teachers in Texas are desperately needed in the subject areas of Special Education and ESL, but with population influx into schools and high rates of teacher retirements, schools are battling to fill positions. According to the Texas Education Agency, "...in the next decade, the state will add 68,000 new elementary school teaching positions and 65,000 new middle school teaching positions across the state," in addition to the roles that have not yet been fulfilled.
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.
