Virginia teacher shortages have grown in the past few years. For example, Charles Pyle, director of media relations with the Virginia Department of Education says, “The pandemic has exacerbated teacher shortages, and the ability of school districts to hire qualified teachers.” Virginia estimates it has upwards of 1,000 teacher vacancies in 132 districts. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 1,420 teacher vacancies plus 3,756 under-qualified teachers in Virginia during the 2020-21 school year.
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.
