Maryland is facing a dire teacher shortage and students are at risk. WMDT states, “Maryland educators say there’s a dire need for more teachers. ‘The teacher shortage is real. We’re having a real problem with retaining teachers,’ said Clinical Practice Coordinator at Salisbury University’s Seidel School of Education Paul Gasior. Education suffers when students do not have access to the teachers they deserve.
Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 1,000 teacher vacancies plus 3,658 under-qualified teachers in Maryland during the 2021-22 school year.
In April 2021, Frontline Education surveyed 1,200 district leaders to discover that two out of three respondents reported having teacher shortages in their schools. This is a record high since launching the survey in 2015.
