State of the Industry: The sector facing one of the largest labor shortages in the U.S. is the educational services field. Finding the most talented teachers with the desired certifications and proven success in the classroom is a significant challenge for public schools, private schools, and colleges. Keeping the best performers often proves to be more difficult. Teaching can be emotionally taxing and is an industry highly susceptible to early burnout, especially for those working in urban areas or with special-needs children. Educators who don’t receive support from their supervisors are more apt to lose motivation and see their effectiveness with students decrease. When teachers leave a job, it is frustrating to find and train their replacements. However, school administrators are not the only ones who lose when a teacher quits. When teaching is subpar, students’ learning and development suffer — and that is not something you can put a price on.
