The Innovative Solution You Need for School Staffing Shortages

July 18, 2022By: VocoVision

The last few years have been some of the toughest in education to date, with school staffing shortages being more prevalent than ever before. 

According to a nationally representative survey conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, 44% of all schools report having full- or part-time teacher vacancies. Out of those schools with vacancies, special education had the highest vacancies, leading the charge at 45%. 

These staffing issues are disrupting day-to-day school operations and impacting student learning, especially when it comes to special education. Students with learning disabilities need accessible services to help them make educational progress. These services are not optional.
