Hundreds of teaching positions in Baltimore City and County will likely go unfilled by the time students fill classrooms for the beginning of the school year on Aug. 29. Just as Baltimore-area school systems have added hundreds of new teaching positions this year — funded with a flood of new state and federal dollars — they have found that a state and national teaching shortage has stymied efforts to fill the new jobs. Together, the city and county need about 1,200 new teachers to fill all the open positions.
