The teacher shortage has been in the news for years — but especially since 2020, nationwide concern has reached new levels.
But... Pennsylvania is not Florida. New York is not Texas. Every part of the country experiences the teacher shortage a little differently.
The Frontline Research & Learning Institute recently published "The Local Teacher Shortage,” a report exploring job posting and candidate application data from Frontline Recruiting & Hiring to see how school districts in various parts of the country are experiencing the teacher shortage. In this episode of Field Trip, we spoke with Laura Neier, Human Resources Director at Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District in New York, about what the data shows about hiring in the Northeast — and whether what she sees at Briarcliff Manor matches up.
In this conversation, Laura shares her perspective on:

- The strategies her district employs to attract and retain new teachers
- Predictions for the future of hiring in K-12 education
