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.
