Maryland Solves the Public School Problem

Email Print

The Maryland state legislature finally (thank God) adjourned last night after throwing a confetti party for itself.  In today’s Baltimore Sun there’s a bullet point listing of all their great accomplishments, including an “agreement” to “lengthen the probationary period for [government school] teachers working toward [lifetime] tenure from two to three years.”

This, we are assured, will be instrumental in “making the state more competitive for federal Race to the Top money.”

I expect the private schools in Baltimore to be emptied out as parents take advantage of this sure-fire education reform and flood the government schools.
