Raising the bar for students and schools
The New York City Department of Education attracts
interest from talented educators from across the country.
Nearly 17,000 applicants
applied to work in our schools this past year
from more than 200 schools of education
across the country
Over 5,000 new teachers
were hired in
more than 1,200 different schools.
There is high demand to teach here, and applicants
come from a wide range of schools - all of which vary
in quality, mission, and training program.

Due to changes in hiring policies following the implementation of hiring restrictions in SY2009-10, highest-need license analysis does not include SY2008-09 hires.
Bolded percentages atop bars indicate the sum of all highest-need license hires for a particular university; Touro College Math and Science licenses are unlabeled at 1%.
'Other' includes bilingual subject licenses and certain foreign languages.
Data set includes new traditional-pathway teachers hired by 10/31 in the years listed; analyses exclude alternative pathway teachers such as the NYC Teaching Fellows.
'DOE' refers to new, traditional pathway teachers hired by 10/31 in years mentioned.
Teachers were linked to undergraduate/graduate programs using the most recent certification recommendation verified by the New York State Education Department,
provided it was granted after 2/2/2004 and prior to 2/1 of the hire year.
7.) Due to rounding, totals may not equal 100% or the sum of individual components; sample sizes vary across charts because some data are not present for all teachers.
