Baden-Württemberg: The shortage of teachers will worsen dramatically

It's happening in quick succession: it was just said that many schools in the south-west were already working in "emergency mode". Now a new study comes to another alarming finding.

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - According to a new study, the shortage of teachers in Baden-Württemberg will increase massively again by 2035. On behalf of the education union GEW, the education scientist Klaus Klemm has examined the increasing number of students and calculated that several thousand teachers will be missing in the next 13 years. The head of the education and science union, Monika Stein, wants to present the study on Friday (11:00) in Stuttgart and make suggestions as to how the state can take even better countermeasures.

Minister of Education Theresa Schopper (Greens) was unimpressed by this result and referred to measures already taken by the state. "We are aware of the additional need for teachers," said the Greens politician to the dpa. "We have increased the study capacities in the teaching professions, which are particularly affected by the shortage of teachers, and we are also accepting new students in the teaching professions beyond the capacity limits."

The study places for prospective primary school teachers have almost doubled. In special education, a new course will be added in Freiburg, which will create another 175 places. "But the training with a degree and legal clerkship takes time," admitted Schopper. Therefore, in the short term, efforts will also be made to find career changers with relevant professional experience, such as social workers.

Only on Tuesday did a study by the Education and Training Association (VBE) show that many schools in the southwest are having dramatic problems covering the scheduled lessons just a few weeks after the start of the school year.
