State officials: 180,000 teachers needed over the next decade

The New York State education industry is facing a crisis. The New York State Teacher Retirement Program projects more than one third of teachers are currently eligible or will soon be eligible to retire.

They estimate districts will need up to 180,000 teachers within the next decade. “The teacher shortage is definitely not looming anymore. It is here. It is in a full blown crisis mode,” Jolene DiBrango, the executive vice president of New York State United Teachers, said.

Teachers are concerned if more educators aren’t brought into the system, this will affect students.
