Md. Gets $6.7M More To Turn Around Worst Schools

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal education officials say Maryland will receive another $6.7 million to continue turnaround efforts in the state’s worst schools.

The U.S. Department of Education recently announced the federal school improvement grants for districts in the state with chronically low-performing schools. The bulk of that funding has been invested in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County in past years.

Maryland has already received $60.7 million since the program was redesigned in 2009.

    So they still feel that a bandaid is sufficient to stop a jugular wound??? The educational system is a joke…All it does is promote gangs, drug dealing, bullying and teen pregancy. Kids would be better off doing anything other than going to school.

    Always gov’t answer to any problem, throw more money at it. Why doesn’t it ever work? We have been spending a ton on under performing schools for years. And the results?
