Collecting and Connecting Teacher Supply and Demand Data is Essential to Meeting Your State’s Education Workforce Needs
Despite continued concerns about teacher shortages, many states do not collect teacher supply data from preparation programs and even fewer connect that information with teacher demand data from districts. Without access to this information, educator preparation programs are unable to graduate teachers aligned to district needs and states are unable to ensure all students have a high-quality teacher for every subject.
Join DQC and expert panelists for a discussion on what policymakers can do to ensure data is used to build an educator workforce that meets their state’s education needs.
