    HOW MANY? This can’t be correct. According to the San Antonio Express-News 420,000 people holding TX teaching certificates aren’t teaching in the TX public schools. According to the Census Bureau TX’s population in 2001 was 21,325,018. After accounting for those under 18, this means that nearly 3% of TX’s adult population is a (former) teacher MIA. Or looking at it another way, if TX has an average student/teacher ratio of 20, approximately 2/3 of those holding certificates have gone AWOL.
