December 10, 2009 – Hour 2

We start the hour with a breif update on Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon: a new hearing on the gift card misappropriation case will take place on January 6th 2010 and her sentencing for the existing indictment is set for January 21th. Stay tuned for further details as they develop.

For the rest of the hour, we talk with Dr. Andres Alonso, CEO of Baltimore City Schools. We talk about Baltimore’s performance in the National Assessment of Educational Progress’s math test for urban school districts, our place in the rankings, and what it means for our schools.
