From the Executive Summary: "California will need a stable, high-quality teacher workforce to weather the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 19] crisis and support student learning in the coming years. However, persistent and worsening teacher shortages threaten the state's ability to meet that need. Teacher shortages, which are often most acute in high-need fields and high-need schools, more severely impact students from low-income families and students of color, with significant implications for school stability and student achievement. Early evidence suggests that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic could further worsen California's already-critical teacher shortages."
