Glut of teachers?

A photo of JRT JRT
I heard from my teacher that there are several applicants for teaching jobs and only so few positions

What do you think? Is there a glut or no?

Do you know anyone having trouble finding a job after graduation?

The oversupply of teachers in Ontario is a well-known fact. I know of many recent teacher's college grads that are having problems even getting on school board supply lists. I read a newspaper article about recent grads converting to Catholicism just to have a shot at getting a job in a Catholic school board.

Unless you're becoming a French or special ed teacher, be prepared for a very competitive job search after graduation.

Getting a PhD might help, but make sure to bring the plaque to impress the toddlers with.
