Your Take: Big happenings with Baltimore schools this week

As an institution of higher education, the SOE prepares educational leaders from across the country to apply best-evidence teachings to wherever they work as an educator or counselor. But our home in Baltimore means that we have a great deal of folks who come from and work in the area, both Baltimore City and its surrounding counties.

We wanted to get your take on two recent stories that will effect the city in drastic ways, both immediately and in the long term.

Dr. Andres Alonso announced on Monday that he would be stepping down as city superintendent effective at the end of the school year. The Sun published an editorial yesterday that considers his departure a blow to the city.

On the other hand, Governor Martin O’Malley is preparing to sign a landmark bill that will allow the city to fund massive construction on its aging educational infrastructure in coming years.

For those students or alums who work in the city, these two stories are going to impact your career greatly. We’re curious to know what you think about them. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments, on our facebook page or on twitter (@JHUEducation)
