Almost 100 teachers have resigned from Carroll County Public Schools. Everyone agrees these teachers are leaving to be paid more elsewhere.
Specifically, it is notable that quite a few have found new positions in Howard County, who is looking to hire teachers after offering current teachers early retirement.
Carroll County is now forced to hire new teachers. Additionally, specialized positions like math, science, and special education need teachers experienced in the field to teach them, and those positions are harder to fill.
Time will tell how officials handle this situation.
