TalentEd Strategic Education Advisor Melva Cárdenas featured in Recruiting Daily, providing strategies for overcoming workforce shortages
Throughout the U.S., hiring qualified teachers is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. That’s because the number of teachers applying for positions isn’t keeping pace with the growing number of job postings, which is causing significant shortages.
This situation is not new as all 50 states plus Washington, D.C. have reported a shortage of teachers since 2005. However, the Learning Policy Institute estimates there could be a nationwide shortfall of 112,000 teachers by next year.
