Out of 2,174 posts in primary schools in Udupi, 1,646 have been filled and 528 are vacant. The government had promised to appoint guest teachers to fill these vacancies. During the pandemic, enrollments in government schools have increased. With the schools and colleges reopening for physical classes, the existing teachers are burdened with extra work.

Almost 60% of teaching positions in government degree colleges affiliated with Mangalore University are unfilled. Even though guest lecturers are appointed every year, there has been no new recruitment of lecturers in the years 2021–22. A similar situation is seen in government-aided schools also. Only the unaided schools that recruit teachers independently are not facing any shortages at the moment.
