Towson University working to help Maryland fill teacher shortages

Maryland universities are trying to help school districts address a severe teaching shortage. It turns out, one of the problems contributing to the shortage is fewer college students are choosing education as a career. Over the past 10 years, the number of college students enrolling in Maryland teacher preparation programs decreased by 33%. The institutions are working together and looking for new ways to attract students to the profession. Each year, Towson University turns out more teachers than any other college or university in the state.
