Big Week for Baltimore City Education News

This week has been packed full of Baltimore education stories headlining local and national news!

  • Four Baltimore schools have been designated for a turnaround including the school where I teach. (my post, Baltimore Sun article, document repository)
  • The “landmark” new Baltimore teachers’ contract passed a vote by the teachers’ union membership Wednesday. A modified version of merit pay, here we come! (my post, Sun article)
  • A recent Sun article highlighted the correlation between recent Baltimore trends: fewer school dropouts and fewer juvenile crimes/arrests.

Between those big news events/stories, the school choice fair, and our STEM Competition, it’s been a busy week! Here’s hoping next week is a bit more relaxing.
