Teacher Shortage

​California has been experiencing a shortage of teachers, especially in special education, bilingual education, and science, technology, engineering and technology, or STEM for some years. The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the problem. EdSource is tracking how the shortage is impacting different districts and regions statewide. Many are working on aggressive tactics to recruit and retain teachers, including offering bonuses and other incentives, and building teacher “residency” programs.
