"The 2017 version of the Minnesota Teacher Supply and Demand report issued Wednesday found a 46 percent increase in the number of teachers leaving the profession since 2008. The education department reports its findings to the Legislature every two years.
Hiring officials surveyed in the report listed a competitive job market and teacher salaries as barriers to retaining teachers, while the number of applicants along with testing and licensing requirements are making it harder to hire them"
