The Indiana Department of Education this week is set to submit to the U.S. Department of Education its most recent list of teacher shortage areas. Such areas as Exceptional Needs and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, Indiana’s list highlights the statewide struggle to find teachers for nearly 15 subjects.
A project that began back in 1990, USDOE began asking states to annually submit a list of areas highlighting the need for more teachers. The Indiana Department of Education's submission includes: Business, Computer Education, Computer Science, CTE, Early Childhood Education, Fine Arts, and many other categories that face a shortage.
Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction commented by stating, “For nearly a decade we have struggled to find educators to fill even the frequently offered classroom subjects. Unfortunately, this shortage continues to spill into areas not only critical to Indiana’s educational plan, but areas that prepare our students for a bright future."
