New Jersey’s Assembly Education Committee on Dec. 9 advanced two bills meant to address teacher shortages in the state.

A5292 requires the compilation of data on teacher shortages. Districts would submit reports to New Jersey’s commissioner of education containing vacancies, new and eliminated positions, and anticipated retirements at their schools. 

A5291 requires educator preparation programs to provide the education department with an annual report containing the first-time and overall test passing rates of teaching candidates for instructional certificates.
