With less than a week until the first day of school, Baltimore City Public School System has hired a record number of new teachers, a win in light of a persisting, nationwide teacher shortage. The district reported that it had hired 821 new teachers from March through Tuesday, the most the system has ever brought on during spring hiring. At the Board of Education’s Tuesday night meeting, staff said the number will continue to grow until the first day of school Monday.
