Teacher Workforce Data

To address teacher shortages, elevate the profession, and fuel the economy, a key first step is unpacking the data.

States are uniquely positioned for this work — by collecting, analyzing, and distributing teacher workforce data, states can shine a light on inequities and inefficiencies. SREB supports states’ efforts to use teacher workforce data to inform strong policies and practices, shares ongoing research and analysis, and conducts focus groups with teachers across the region to learn more about their experiences.
