Dozens of teachers have left the Philadelphia school district within the past two months, and filling those spots has proven to be difficult, school district officials say.

In that time frame the district lost 169 teachers. That's a 200% increase from the same period a year ago, when only 57 teachers turned in their resignations, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
