Severe teacher shortage in Arizona continues...

For the 5th consecutive year, Arizona School Personnel Administrators Association (ASPAA) survey results confirm the continued teacher shortage in Arizona. The data indicates:

- About 21% of teacher vacancies across the state this year still remain unfilled
- Almost half the vacancies are filled by teachers who do not meet the state’s standard teacher certification requirements

The survey focused on teacher vacancies due to unfilled positions and teachers who have already severed employment as of August 30, 2019, and 150 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. Highly educated and skilled workforce are cornerstones to a growing and thriving economy.

The full press release can be found here:

A big THANK YOU to Justin Wing, Director of Human Resources at Washington Elementary School District for collecting and analyzing the #ASPAA teacher shortage survey each year. Thank you to all the school districts and charter schools who participated.
