Baltimore City teachers, prospects say the district’s hiring and certification processes make it difficult to get hired

September 28, 2022

Some Baltimore City teachers say the process of getting hired and certified for a teaching job is slow and frustrating, forcing some candidates to turn away from the city system and accept jobs in neighboring counties. While part of the difficulty is the pace of processing applications through the district’s Human Capital Office, teachers say Maryland state certification rules also make getting the necessary credentials too complicated. The complaints come at one of the worst possible times for the school system. This spring and summer the system went on a hiring spree to replace hundreds of teachers who had left and to fill some 600 new positions that were created when tens of millions of dollars in new federal and state funds flowed into school system coffers.
