D.C. Public Schools Losing Teachers in Middle of School Year

The D.C. Public Schools system has reportedly lost nearly 200 teachers since the start of the current school year, as administrators struggle to fill the vacancies with new hires or long-term substitutes.

Ballou Senior High School in Southeast is among the hardest-hit schools, with more than a quarter of Ballou’s faculty quit after starting work in August, according to data The Washington Post received through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Instructors who parted ways with Ballou this year cited several reasons, including low teacher evaluations and student behavior.

The Post reported that the schools system has had an unusual spike in the number of educators resigning in the middle of the school year.

DCPS officials reportedly declined to have Ballou Principal Yetunde Reeves available for comment.
