“Baltimore is often ranked in the top three per capita spending districts. The total budget for Baltimore public schools is roughly $1.2 billion. That is for a city with a total population of roughly 600,000 (The greater Baltimore metropolitan area is 2.8 million). In 2015, the school population was 84,000 kids.”
– Johnathan Turley, on news that at least 23 Baltimore schools failed to produce a single student capable of doing math at grade level.
