Thoughts on Urban Public Schools is doing a multi-part series on Saving Cleveland. And while the piece below may be about fixing education in Cleveland, it sounds like a lot of ideas that we could be using to save schools in Baltimore.

Governor O’Malley likes to tout the numbers that claim Maryland has “the best public schools in the nation.” But if you take a look at the performance of students in Baltimore City Public Schools, the success rate isn’t there; particularly when it comes to college attendance and providing legitimate opportunities for students to improve their socioeconomic situation. We owe more to our kids than that, and these are just some of the ideas and issues that we face in trying to provide legitimate opportunities for Maryland’s public school students.
