The United States Department of Education has identified Bilingual Education as a nationwide teacher shortage area, and a specific shortage area for New York State. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that 9.4% of all students in U.S. public schools were identified as English Language Learners in 2014-15. New York and the nation as a whole are expected to continue to diversify in the years ahead - generating sustained demand for the teachers prepared to support Bilingual learners.
