The Marc Steiner Show

December 12, 2012 – Segment 1

We take a look at the newly released Baltimore City school system’s 10 year plan, which would close some schools and renovate others over the next decade to deal with infrastructural problems. Joining us to discuss the plan and some of the controversy surrounding it are:

  • Erica Green, education reporter with The Baltimore Sun;
  • Michael Sarbanes, Executive Director of the Office of Engagement for Baltimore City Public Schools and a major architect of the plan; 
  • Arica Gonzalez, parent at Gwynns Falls Elementary; 
  • Jimmy Stuart, co-chair of the Baltimore Education Coalition (BEC) and organizer with Child First Authority; and 
  • Michael Eugene Johnson, community leader who attended Northwestern High School, which is one of the schools slated for closing under this plan.
