FILE - Back to School-Teacher Shortages

Timothy Allison, a collaborative special education teacher in Birmingham, Ala., leads a class at Sun Valley Elementary School on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022. The Birmingham school system is struggling to fill around 50 teaching spots, including 15 in special education, despite $10,000 signing bonuses for special education teachers. 

(The Center Square) – New research on the demand for teachers highlights the lack of information about teacher shortages at all levels of government.

A working paper from Brown University found that "teacher shortages are still poorly understood, and it remains unclear whether there is a shortfall of teachers on the national scale or if shortages are localized – a key component of the current debate around teacher shortages."
