As a new school year draws near, public schools are looking to fill their last vacant teaching positions. Baltimore County has to fill 32 spots, Howard County just 18. Baltimore City has to fill a whopping 190.

Of course, that’s an improvement over where we started. The head of the city school district’s human resources division told WJZ the district “started out with over 400 vacancies.” Apparently, amid a surplus of teachers last year, the district failed to start hiring new teachers early enough.

The focus will be on recruiting math, science, and special education teachers, who have been the most difficult to find.
