Charter Schools in Baltimore

(Algerina Perna / Baltimore Sun)September 29, 2015- Segment 1

Today we discuss a recent lawsuit filed by some Baltimore city charter schools against Baltimore City Public Schools, alleging that the district’s new funding formula for charters violates state law and leaves the schools struggling for money to fund books and supplies with: Jack Pannell, Founder of Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys, a Baltimore City Public Charter School; Dr. Jessica T. Shiller, Professor of Urban Education at Towson University, and producer and director of the documentary film School’s Out: Closing Baltimore Schools with New Lens and the Baltimore Algebra Project; Matthew Hornbeck, Principal at Hampstead Hill Academy; Bobbi MacDonald, Executive Director, The City Neighbors Foundation; and Rachel Cohen, Baltimore freelance journalist and Writing Fellow at The American Prospect.
