The survey focused on teacher vacancies due to unfilled positions and teachers who have already severed employment as of December 12, 2018, and 211 school districts and charter schools throughout Arizona participated.
The severity of the teacher shortage must be addressed. Arizona must make a collective effort to ensure the recruitment and retention of effective teachers through increased funding.
