Every year the U.S. Department of Education reports for each state in the country the grade levels, subject areas, and geographic areas that have experienced teacher shortages.

This report, a joint effort of the Midwest Educator Effectiveness Research Alliance and REL Midwest, describes the steps in more detail, emphasizing the methods for addressing each research question.
