Teacher Shortages Persist in the U.S. (Source; The Atlantic and OPE, Sept 2015)

Teacher Shortages – A closer look at the numbers
While the country’s teaching force is certainly dealing with a staffing problem, a closer look at the numbers shows that shortages are centered in particular subject areas and geographic areas. In fact, there may be too many certified teachers in some fields, such as early-childhood education.  See the whole article at The Atlantic.

Then look over to the U.S. Dep of Education and Post Secondary Office for data on the subject.

 

 

School Rankings and Estimates for States (Source; NEA, August 2015)

“The data presented in this combined report―Rankings & Estimates―provide facts about the extent to which local, state, and national governments commit resources to public education. As one might expect in a nation as diverse as the United States—with respect to economics, geography, and politics—the level of commitment to education varies on a state-by-state basis. Regardless of these variations, improvements in public education can be measured by summary statistics. Thus, NEA Research offers this report to its state and local affiliates as well as to researchers, policymakers, and the public as a tool to examine public education programs and services.” –
