Which endorsements are more, and less, in demand for teaching in Alaska?

I am pursuing a teacher certification to teach secondary education- Social Studies/Police Science/Government. I don't see many openings for Middle/High School Social Studies teachers in Alaska. Are SS teachers rarely required in comparison to other subjects?

I don't think social studies teachers are in demand anywhere which is why I changed my major a loooong time ago. Get your degree in what it is in but take as many praxis tests as you can. Do English language arts. Math. Science. You will get a job by making yourself HQ in other content areas.
