Will they have a shortage in a few years, if not now?

As far as I can see, there is not one right now. The market is pretty tight with some openings. I can't tell you if there will be a shortage soon, I haven't been here long enough to evaluate it like that.

Depends if you agree with the set teacher-student ratio or not. Currently to save money the ratio is high, so therefore we do not have a shortage, not even remotely. If you disagree with the ratio, then yes we have quite the shortage- classrooms of 30+.

I don't really foresee a shortage of teachers happening.

Ugh... that's sad. Everywhere I look, class sizes are growing larger and larger... In my opinion, states are either going to have to hire more teachers, or they may as well get rid of public education entirely and make everyone get schooled at home through computers, if they really want to save money. Teachers aren't nearly as effective in large classrooms, due to the fact that they can't give the students one on one help. Not to mention, the more students per classroom, the more work the teachers that are working have. Plus, there is also the increase in behavioral problems when you get a certain amount of kids per classroom.

What is happening to our country? Aside from healthcare, what could possibly be more important than education? I think some people need a big reality check as to what is important, and get their priorities straight. I really hate politics. People are placing their views on a higher pedestal than the needs of our children. Is it truly any wonder why other countries laugh at us? Our country is a shell of its former self, and it will be even worse in the future when there are so many kids without a quality education.

In a nutshell: the American public has been abandoned in favor of corporatism. This is pervasive throughout our society, not just in the arena of public education.
