Data from the 2021 Washington State educator shortage report states, "Shortage areas persist in classrooms serving some of the state's most vulnerable students, such as special education and English Language Learners... Shortage areas also exist in classrooms targeting high-demand career fields [such as] STEM." The percent of teachers issued emergency certificates in the 2020-2021 school year comprised 53% of the educator workforce.
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.
