Below you see ignoring these Constitutional rights under Title 9 hurts not only people of color ----women, disabled as well. This is why Maryland thought it could refuse to fund Historically Black Colleges and Baltimore City schools----diverting all those Title 9 funds to Wall Street Baltimore Development, Johns Hopkins, and lots of fraud and corruption. The State of Maryland kept much of this funding in its own coffers as well. So, the City of Baltimore has plenty of funding to support all the public universities and help private liberal arts universities as well---IT ALWAYS HAD THIS ABILITY---WE SIMPLY NEED REAL PROGRESSIVE LABOR AND JUSTICE IN BALTIMORE CITY HALL AS MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL.

THE CITY OF BALTIMORE HAS PLENTY OF REVENUE FOR EDUCATION EVEN BEING ABLE TO SUBSIDIZE OUR PRIVATE LIBERAL ARTS SCHOOLS IF WE GET RID OF WALL STREET BALTIMORE DEVELOPMENT AND JOHNS HOPKINS FROM OUR GOVERNMENT AND NON-PROFITS.
Below you see pieces of legal proceedings that went on for decades as the City of Baltimore fought for its Constitutional rights in education funding ----and won in state courts. The case fighting for over $1 billion dollars ended with a $700 million dollar award to the City of Baltimore public schools and Historically Black Colleges. The Maryland Assembly felt it could simply ignore that court award----because of an unconstitutional law it passed----BUT IT CANNOT AND IF A MARYLAND ASSEMBLY POL REFUSES TO VOTE FOR A COURT AWARD WHETHER STATE OR CITY----THEY NEED TO BE THROWN IN JAIL FOR CONTEMPT OF COURT. That is what should have happened over ten years ago and each year since as the city has tried to collect. The point is---- BALTIMORE CITY HAS ALWAYS HAD PLENTY OF EDUCATION REVENUE SOURCES TO BE A THRIVING SCHOOLS SYSTEM....IT WAS SIMPLY LOOTED.
A mayor and city council who is progressive hires lawyers that will sue the heck out of Maryland Assembly pols----and take to the US Justice and Supreme Court the failure of Maryland to fund city schools---it provides oversight and accountability to see that the funds that should go to schools actually gets there and VOILA----THERE IS PLENTY OF FUNDING FOR PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES IN BALTIMORE.
Nothing is more Republican than school choice and vouchers and there is Mayor Schmoke---running as a Democrat working for Johns Hopkins in neo-conservative education policy in Baltimore. Schmoke was the one who teamed with Nancy Grasmick in handing Baltimore City schools to the State of Maryland under the guise of a special needs shortfall in education that supposedly the state would fix---but as we see there was never any intent to fix the problem----they simply wanted Baltimore City Schools in the hands of the State and not the citizens of Baltimore. THEREFORE THE TERMS OF STATE CONTROL OF BALTIMORE CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS VOID---YOUR POLS KNOW THEY CAN SIMPLY DEMAND CONTROL OF SCHOOLS BACK FROM STATE.
You can see this was happening 20 years ago and is why Baltimore City never had a real advocate for school funding----all mayors were Republicans posing as Democrats.
Hopkins has now place Schmoke in charge of what is the only city university that is functioning for citizens but was recently upgraded to be more international....University of Baltimore.
Advocacy for school choice and school vouchers In 1999
Schmoke delivered some remarks on the subject of school choice and school vouchers at a Manhattan Institute luncheon in New York. An edited version of [a transcript of] that speech entitled "Why School Vouchers Can Help Inner-City Children" is available online and in that brief web page, "Schmoke explains why he believes [that] school choice and vouchers will improve the quality of public education for America’s youth, particularly inner-city minority children."
Schmoke first came out in support of school choice in a speech at Johns Hopkins University in March of 1996.
MARYLAND STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION v. BRADFORD MARYLAND STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, et al. v. Keith A. BRADFORD, et al.
No. 85, Sept. Term, 2004.
-- June 09, 2005
This appeal constitutes the latest skirmish in a decades-long battle by Baltimore City and others to force the General Assembly, in carrying out its mandate under Article VIII of the Maryland Constitution to “establish throughout the State a thorough and efficient System of Free Public Schools [and] provide by taxation, or otherwise, for their maintenance,” to increase substantially its funding support for the Baltimore City Public School System. The appeal now before us, by the State, questions, on jurisdictional, procedural, and substantive grounds, the validity of an order entered by the Circuit Court for Baltimore City in August, 2004. We shall conclude that (1) the validity of much that is now being challenged by the State is not properly before us at present, but (2) one aspect of the court's order is before us and is invalid.
After an extensive evidentiary hearing, the court, on June 30, 2000, filed a Memorandum Opinion and accompanying Order. In its Order, the court, after referencing its 1996 determination that the State was not providing the children of Baltimore with a Constitutionally adequate education when measured by contemporary educational standards, declared that still to be the case.
7. There was general agreement among all of the groups that studied the fiscal affairs of BCPS that there were serious and systemic management deficiencies, some of long standing, that were simply never addressed. Programs were put into place without regard to the lack of available funding; funds that were, or could have been made available were never used because of mismanagement and inattention. Painful but necessary decisions-layoffs, etc.-were either deferred or simply not implemented. Some of the problems arose when the new board assumed control pursuant to ch. 288. Prior to that time, the City Government handled some of the fiscal matters for the school system, but that ended when the new board was appointed. The management staff appointed by the new board seemed incapable of discharging those responsibilities.
Here you see back in the 1980s Baltimore's state hospital was made private and non-profit-----which I do not even believe is a legal designation. This is a branch of a large public university system that is being allowed to operate as a corporation----and it houses much of medical training, emergency services, and hospital care that citizens of Baltimore need. Just as with Hopkins, UMMS took most of the senior and poor health care that was Medicare and Medicaid in Maryland and the billions of dollars lost to health industry fraud each year in each state-----came mostly from UMMS and Hopkins. As it says below----UMMS is one of the largest national and now global health tourism corporations AND NOT A PUBLIC UNIVERSITY CAMPUS. UMMS uses Johns Hopkins in hiring its staff and acts with Baltimore Development and Hopkins on all that is International Economic Zone because of this quasi-governmental designation. If this designation was challenged in court-----
IT WOULD END AND THIS HOSPITAL WOULD BE A REAL PUBLIC HOSPITAL WITH A FOCUS ON THE NEEDS OF CITIZENS OF BALTIMORE AND MARYLAND. FREE DOCTORS TRAINING AT UMMS AND HOPKINS WILL PROVIDE ALL THE DOCTORS THE STATE NEEDS.
Taking UMMS back to public designation means the Federal and state funds that come to this university would be allocated according to Federal law----and not for corporate profit. It would make UMMS and its Law School operate as a real public institution transparent to the public. Right now, UMMS does all of its development meetings behind closed doors---just as Hopkins----only to have public forums to let people know what is rolling out---ABSOLUTELY NO PUBLIC VOICE AT UMMS.
This is another chasm for public money with no transparency or say----bringing it back to being public opens lots of public university funding including education funding.
OLDEST PUBLIC MEDICAL SCHOOLS? OH, REALLY?
Our History John Beale Davidge - First DeanThe University of Maryland School of Medicine is America's oldest public medical school. In fact, of the nation's medical schools, only four are older: Penn, Harvard, Columbia and Dartmouth.
University of Maryland Medical System Overview
The University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) was created in 1984 when the state-owned University Hospital became a private, nonprofit organization. It has evolved into a multi-hospital system with academic, community and specialty service missions reaching every part of the state and beyond. Test
UMMS is a national and regional referral center for trauma, cancer care, neurocare, cardiac care, women's and children's health and physical rehabilitation. It also has one of the world's largest kidney transplant programs, as well as scores of other programs that improve the physical and mental health of thousands of people daily.
University of Maryland Medical System to acquire Medicaid manage care firm
By Meredith Cohn The Baltimore Sun
University of Maryland Medical system to buy Riverside Health Inc. The University of Maryland Medical System is poised to enter the Medicaid and Medicare managed care market in the state with an agreement to acquire Riverside Health Inc.
The University of Maryland Medical System is poised to enter the Medicaid and Medicare managed care market in the state with an agreement to acquire Riverside Health Inc.
Timonium-based Riverside employs about 100 people and provides health coverage to 25,000 people enrolled in the Maryland HealthChoice program.
The university system, which includes 12 hospitals and health care facilities, has sought approval from regulators at the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to offer a Medicare Advantage plan in 2016.
Robert A. Chrencik, the Maryland system's president and chief executive officer, said the acquisition "fits well with our model to be a comprehensive health services provider to the people of Maryland and beyond."
Details of the acquisition were not released.
If you are preparing to make Baltimore City the state of Maryland's platform for EXPANDED AND IMPROVED MEDICARE FOR ALL-----having a gorilla in the room that should be that platform but is just as global profit-making in goals is the first thing to correct. The American people have made clear----THEY DO NOT WANT THEIR PERSONAL INFORMATION SOLD, USED FOR PROFIT, OR MADE PUBLIC.......AGAINST ALL HIPAA LAWS.
So this public institution is spending tons of revenue-----most likely Federal, state, and local funding for health care----expanding these online and data-driven profit machines having nothing to do with quality health care. UMMS has become a biotech corporate research facility interested in patented products. As I stated earlier----we plan to make Hopkins and UMMS BioTech facilities into city agencies tied to EPA, FDA, Department of AG, and public health regulatory enforcement.
University of Maryland system makes no bones about excluding illegally state and local candidates for office that are not corporate-------Democratic primary debates and events are only for Clinton neo-liberals. No policy discussions about how bad all of this privatized health care and the Affordable Care Act happens---BECAUSE UMMS IS A CORPORATE CAMPUS.
William Donald Schaefer was the grand mover and shaker in creating quasi-governmental organizations of our public agencies------Baltimore Development and UMMS happened under Schaefer.......and NONE OF THIS IS DEMOCRATIC.....you can see why Erhlich---as a neo-con tapped Schaefer for his Comptroller----Schaefer worked for neo-conservative Johns Hopkins his entire career.
Note that it was the dismantlement of Medicare and Medicaid oversight that allowed these Trusts to be looted each year of hundreds of billions of dollars. All of the capability to analyze data for these supposed goals was been in place for decades and used to happen at the Federal level----until Reagan/Clinton dismantled all oversight. So, we do not need private health corporations doing what they call data-driven research on what is good in health care for the American people---
WE HAVE MEDICARE WITH DECADES OF THIS DATA ALREADY AVAILABLE ONLY MEDICARE LOOKED AT HEALTH DATA FROM A PUBLIC INTEREST POINT OF VIEW-----AND THESE PRIVATE CORPORATIONS WILL LOOK AT IT FROM A PROFIT-MAKING POINT OF VIEW.
The citizens of Baltimore lost both a public university and a public hospital when this quasi-governmental designation was allowed. Those thinking UMMS gives good care had better watch out as it super-sizes its global corporate expansion.
Data analytics a big focus for University of Maryland Medical System
[Interview]We want to mine info to better understand business, profitability, CIO Jon Burns says
June 12, 2015
By Katie Dvorak
New health technology projects are always underway at the University of Maryland Medical System, but one that is stealing Chief Information Officer Jon Burns' attention is building a data analytics structure.
"We have lots of information, lots of data that we store," Burns (pictured) told FierceHealthIT in an interview. "What we want to be able to do is develop an infrastructure that mines that data in ways that help us understand our business better, understand our profitability better and make sure that we are ... developing things that will help the organization continue to thrive."
Some of the analytic projects currently underway at the 12-hospital network include development of a predictive model on sepsis and an initiative to prevent readmissions using patient data.
The health system wants to take blended information from multiple sources and use that information in real-time to make it actionable and make better decisions around clinical care, as well as from a performance standpoint at the organization, Burns added.
In addition to UMMS' work in analytics, Burns also spoke to FierceHealthIT about data security, the challenge of creating alignment on specific objectives and how he juggles his many tasks as CIO.
Corporations no longer have research branches to their operational costs------our universities are now corporate R and D.
The State of Maryland has spent most of higher education funding for two decades to building these corporate campuses with O'Malley working with Obama and Congress to super-size these corporate structures. Today, all talk in Maryland Assembly is sending education funding to these 'economic startup constructs that are bringing absolutely no jobs----and is consuming all health spending costs.
Maryland's health system is the most private and profit-driven in the nation and excludes patients from much of the hospital procedures since the Affordable Care Act that these product-patenting mills say they are helping. Most of these products will be sold to global health corporations and marketed overseas. So, it brings little value to the city while these two institutions create great costs to the city and state.
Making these campuses public will redirect all of that funding to patient care----to hiring staff to meet quality care standards----and give Johns Hopkins an opportunity to repay the citizens of Baltimore for all its excess revenue grab over decades.
Most importantly -----sending Hopkins back to being a small private college opens all avenues of public education in the city since Hopkins is the driver of privatizing all that is public and the cheapening of education in Baltimore.
There is not one person in economics who does not know that this startup economic model failed back in the 1990s with Clinton. IT IS NEVER PRODUCED ANY REAL ECONOMIC VALUE AND ALL THE MONEY MOVED TO THESE THINGS ARE WASTED. Tying our public universities to this model must be reversed to rebuild our strong public higher education.
Will the Tech-Startup Bubble Burst in 2015?
Peter S. Cohan Contributor President of Peter S. Cohan & Associates January 28, 2015
Some entrepreneurs help create bubbles. These can benefit all startups -- or kill them. The two things that make all the difference? Timing and strategy.
By bubble, I mean an economic process by which stories of initial financial wins draw in "tourists," capital providers without deep expertise in a particular industry who are attracted by others who are making more money than they are. Tourists flood that industry with money that flows into businesses that can’t provide a return.
There has been so much fraud tied to these state economic startup funds that we know all of this will create a higher level of fraud. All of these startup funds from Federal, state, and private corporation is heading to these largest institutions and it is this funding that will determine which universities stay open after the coming bond market crash----which assures liberal arts and humanities universities and degrees will disappear.
