Five high schools and one middle school in Baltimore failed to have a single student score proficient on the statewide tests for English and math. Not one student in any of the six schools. Not a single student. By the way Baltimore has the fourth highest per student spending in the nation. How does something like this happen, how can failure on this scale occur? One student explained exactly how failure on this level occurs when he said, “The tests are harder than what we’re learning in class.”
Reminder – there is no correlation between the money spent on education and the quality of education received. None.
