The Growing Teacher Shortage
According to J. Renee Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of E Squared, between 2009 and 2014 there has been a 39% decline in the number of students going into education at colleges and universities across the country. In addition, depending upon the rate at which those who are eligible to retire go ahead and retire, she is projecting a shortage of between 650,000 and 1.5 million classroom teachers within the next five years. E Squared provides staff recruitment support for our nation’s schools.
