If you haven’t heard, leftist-led cities are failing on multiple fronts, not the least of which is how and what we educate our children. Of course, this particular city doesn’t want you to know how spectacularly that failure goes, so they’re simply covering it up…
Welcome to Baltimore, where it was discovered in February that of 23 public schools studied, exactly zero students are proficient or capable in math.
Dems don’t do education.. at least, not well or effectively. No matter what their gaslighting.https://t.co/tWkMuUnqTn

That’s right, schools crammed with hundreds and hundreds of children of all ages can’t say that a single student knows what they are doing in math.
It’s shocking, to be sure – and a major reason why the Maryland State Department of Education was forced to alter its reporting of test results. Note that teaching methods or curricula weren’t changed, just what was being reported.
As Project Baltimore, an investigative reporting initiative in the area, reported, they basically reduced the amount of information both parents and taxpayers can access regarding the schools’ and students’ performance.
Behind it seems to be Maryland State Department of Education, Superintendent Mohammed Choudhury.
For starters, when it was discovered just how low test scores were in the area, Choudhury pretty much locked himself behind closed doors and refused to comment. When he was caught out of his office for questioning, his answers came out something like this:
Right now, Maryland Gov. @iamwesmoore is monitoring, but not commenting on the situation surrounding State Superintendent of Schools Mohammed Choudhury. In April, @FOXBaltimore asked him about the transparency at MSDE and this is what he had to say.@chrispapst pic.twitter.com/9HykZL34PC

Project Baltimore also found numerous text messages and emails that proved that MSDE was doing little else but covering up its failure, including not being all that willing to comply with a public records request.
As Adam Andrzejewski, founder of Openthebooks.com, a watchdog group, said, “He didn’t want to turn over information about how he was making decisions on what student test scores to post in the worst performing schools.”
Meanwhile, boys in those schools are learning to wear dresses.
Fox & Friends invited a parent from Baltimore to talk about why she pulled her son from public schools. Apparently it was a comment from a teacher that a four-year-old boy could wear a dress. Boys commonly wore dresses from the 16th century until the early 20th century. pic.twitter.com/QYQ0ZI5OrV

And don’t even get me started on how violence in Baltimore schools has risen…
As a result, the governor is now considering not renewing Choudhury’s contract with the state.
New overnight, the group People Empowered by The Struggle writes to Gov. Wes Moore and MSDE demanding the State Superintendent of Schools be removed. @FOXBaltimore @chrispapst https://t.co/zL2vFkgmtA pic.twitter.com/t0y2juLTL7
