Outlook for Maryland Education

“The imperative to accelerate minority achievement grows with each school year, as Maryland will soon have a non-Caucasian majority in its public schools.”

Source: Maryland 2001 State of Education Report (MSDE website)


According to the Maryland Teacher Staffing Report, 2002-2004:

  • For 2002-2003, Maryland public schools projected a need to hire 155 teachers certified in ESOL; however, they’re projected to hire only 110 (71% of need).

  • As a result, ESOL is once again listed as a “critical shortage area” in Maryland.


Class of 2003: Years Teaching Experience


Grades Represented

  • Almost every grade is represented from kindergarten through high school.

  • Content areas include elementary education, language arts, Spanish, special education, English, Latin, math, and literacy.


Schools Represented


Certification?
