State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman on Thursday released a call to action in response to a recent report detailing a nearly 700-person shortage among SC schools during the 2020-21 school year.

The 2020 Educator Supply and Demand Report by the Center for Educator Recruitment, Retention, and Advancement (CERRA), found that 699 teaching/service positions were vacant at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year.

Around 20% of those vacancies are in the special education field, which “represents the largest majority of vacancies each year.”

However, more positions were created this school year, “presumably…to staff the virtual schools and academies established in response to COVID-19.”
