[ST PAUL, MN] -- The Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards published the /pelsb/assets/Supply%20and%20Demand%202021_Final_tcm1113-463801.pdf2021 Biennial Minnesota Teacher Supply and Demand Report on January 21.
The report had several findings, including: more than half of Minnesota Tier 3 and Tier 4 Licensed teachers are not working in a public school or a charter school classroom. Additionally, this report shows the consistent and persistent shortage of teachers in three main areas: (1) a shortage of teachers holding professional licenses in several special education fields, (2) a shortage of teachers holding professional licenses in multiple language licensure areas, and (3) a staggering lack of teachers of color and indigenous teachers in all corners of the state
The Teacher Supply and Demand Report also provides a broad overview and data on the number of teachers throughout Minnesota.
The report was produced by PELSB and is available in full on PELSB's Reports webpage.
