With just over 100,000 Pennsylvania college and university enrollments in 2017, a staggering 6% of those students will pursue an Education degree, according to Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education recently reported, the number of undergraduate education majors declined 55% nationwide, since 1996. Since 2009, the number of newly issued in-state instructional teaching certificates dropped by 71%.
Pennsylvania went from issuing 14,000 licenses to just 4,412 in the 2016-2017 year. Mike Tony, a writer for the Herald-Standard (Uniontown, PA), published an article July 29, 2019, highlighting these drops and attempted to shed light on the students declining interests in the education field. Read the article here.

Although these numbers continue to drastically change, Garnet Valley School District perseveres, hiring the best and brightest. Since January of 2019, the school district has posted and filled 23 teaching positions and interviewed 1,025 candidates.

As we approach the 2019-2020 school year, we continue to leverage our resources by creating an online following through @GV_Hire on Twitter, aggressively networking at college and university job fairs, and building our Garnet Valley School District brand. In 2019, our professionals spoke out and we were awarded one of the Top Large Work Places by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Garnet Valley continues to grow and evolve as a great place to live, learn and work.
