South Florida Schools Reporting Teacher, Support Staff Shortage

August 14, 2021

It has been a brutal year and a half for educators and students alike and now South Florida is facing another major education problem: A teacher and staff shortage.

Statistics on the staff shortage problem are startling. According to the Florida Education Association, the Sunshine State is close to 5,000 teachers short for this school year.

“Eventually, we’re not going to have teachers in the classroom. We’ll have substitute teachers instead of certified teachers,” said Liliana Ruido with Broward Teachers Union.
