National Report Card on Physics Teacher Preparation

Most institutions prepare zero new physics teachers per year.

The severe national shortage of high school physics teachers is due to very low numbers of new teachers educated at US colleges and universities. About two-thirds of institutions with a secondary education program prepared zero high school physics teachers in the last five years. But small increases can make a huge difference!

The shortage of new physics teachers could be eliminated if each college and university educated one more teacher per year. For more information about these numbers, see the FAQ.
