WHERE WILL ALL OF BALTIMORE CITY'S CITIZENS SEND THEIR CHILDREN?
That's where all the intense competition begins---it has started in Baltimore for few decades but will heighten. The average or low-performing Latino and black students in City, Poly, and Western will be pushed out and enter this lower-tier moving children into apprenticeships at 7th grade---no need for middle or high schools.
'But for the system's secondary schools to take the next leap forward, Alonso and new city schools Chief Academic Officer Sonja Santelises say City, Poly, and Western must raise the ceiling. Doing so, Alonso believes, lifts expectations across the system. "Truthfully," he says, "I'm not interested in equity without excellence."
Santelises admits the plan has generated some backlash'
This is what Governor Hogan and Catherine Pugh mean when they say they are going to fix Baltimore. All establishment candidates said at forums ---we will work with Gov Hogan to FIX BALTIMORE. We had Maryland Assembly pols telling us two years ago the Assembly leaders were going to end funding for public schools in Maryland. These are the same pols media and the Maryland Democratic Party calls PROGRESSIVE. So, we know it's coming----and PUGH will hand the city over to Wall Street and global corporations to install all that global education corporation structure moving Baltimore towards that Asian neo-liberal hyper-competitive tiered education---ALL OF WHICH IS VERY FAR-RIGHT AS IS JOHNS HOPKINS AND WALL STREET BALTIMORE DEVELOPMENT---
Rally Held To Ask Governor Hogan To Restore Funding To Baltimore Schools

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Passionate protest. Monday night, there’s growing concern among Maryland parents about proposed cuts to education. A group of Baltimore City school students and teachers took their fight to Annapolis.
Christie Ileto reports city schools have a lot on the line.
Baltimore City Schools are already in the red with a $60 million shortfall. Parents, students and teachers took their fight to Annapolis to fight for every single dollar on the chopping block.
“Education is important,” said Quinn Katz Zogby.
It’s a message from Quinn Katz Zogby.
Dozens of students, teachers and parents delivered 4,000 postcards to Governor Hogan’s office, fighting to fund their schools.
“We’ve sent letters; we’ve been here every Monday night,” said one.
On the table this session: fewer state dollars for school districts across Maryland. And for Baltimore City, already facing a $60 million shortfall, when you tack on a $35 million cut from state lawmakers, the money woes just get worse.
“So far, we’ve heard a lot of `Give us more’ without any discussion about where it’s going to come from,” said Governor Hogan.
“That takes away resources from my child,” said Craig Williams.
Blaming part of the city schools’ shortfall on a 2010 contract that gave teachers a raise, a budget inherited by new CEO Gregory Thornton from the last administration.
“I’ll admit, we knew we had this challenge in front of us. What we didn’t anticipate was the $35 million that came out of Annapolis,” said Gregory Thornton, City Schools CEO.
“I just feel like Governor Hogan knows that you need money to be able to run a school properly. He needs to understand not just how you feel about how we feel about these budget cuts,” said Quinn.
Governor Hogan has said he welcomes ideas on where money can be found to fund Maryland schools.
Baltimore City school leaders are proposing a new budget to the city council in April. The new fiscal year starts in July.
Thornton was not a good education administrator---he simply works for national corporate charter chains and no doubt was installed to be the fall guy for the policies passed by Maryland Assembly pols led by Baltimore Maryland Assembly pols like PUGH. Those policies were the $1 billion school building bond leverage used as an excuse to close more Baltimore public schools under the guise of fixing up what became small number of schools. What the Maryland Assembly did with that bond deal----AND IT WAS DELIBERATE----was to force Baltimore City Schools to take funding revenue going to the school classrooms and designate that portion of funding to support that $1 billion in Wall Street bond leverage. This is what forced Thornton to cut----AS WAS THE PLAN----making him look like the bad guy when it was all the Baltimore Maryland Assembly and Baltimore City Hall pols and Baltimore Development 'justice' organizations who pushed those school building bond leverages. Remember, Baltimore has had the revenue to rebuild and maintain all public school building for decades----they just didn't want to because the Master Plan was to end public education to build the Asian neo-liberal corporate education.
You always see the same Baltimore pols that pushed the bad education policies in the front line of protesting the bad results-----ALL WHILE RUNNING AS DEMOCRATS. THIS IS CRAZY STUFF ---
Thornton will be just fine---they will move him to another part of this Wall Street global education movement. The NAACP, BUC, BEC, all know this is the goal as they are the ones pushing these policies for Wall Street Baltimore Development
Every citizen in Baltimore is angry about all this education policy and 80,000 voters come out to vote for the very pols that installed all this bad education policy-----REALLY?????????????????????
Just as the Wall Street players kept the focus on Rawlings-Blake as the bad guy when she was simply installing Wall Street Baltimore Development policies as did Dixon and O'Malley----Thornton is now being allowed to be the fall guy for policies passed by Maryland Assembly pols all of which were re-elected.
Thornton outlines plan to close city schools' budget deficit

City schools CEO's plan to shrink deficit: Central office layoffs, eliminating "surplus pool" teachers, staff.Central office layoffs, elimination of hundreds of teaching and staff positions in a "surplus pool" and other savings totaling $63 million are part of Baltimore schools CEO Gregory Thornton's plan to shrink an estimated $108 million budget deficit.
In an interview with The Baltimore Sun, Thornton outlined a plan to chip away at a deficit run up by union contracts, pre-kindergarten expenses and an overhaul of the district's infrastructure — and made even larger due to $35 million in proposed cuts in state funding.
Thornton has previously been mum on the overall size of the deficit and his strategies for eliminating it. In recent weeks city officials said they were "shocked" to learn of the shortfall and complained they had been kept in the dark about the financial troubles.
Thornton said he has "not been asleep" and has identified in-house savings while lobbying officials to restore state funding. He said he did not want to "slash and burn to get to a number."
Thornton said about $15 million can be saved by eliminating the majority of the district's surplus pool of employees — full-time teachers and staff who are on the system's books, but have no permanent placements.
They found things like the fact that I have five call centers...IBM doesn't even have five call centers. — Baltimore schools CEO Gregory ThorntonThe number in the pool varies during the school year — as of March 3, the system had 209 "surplus" positions. The staff members are deployed to schools, but Thornton said they're an extra set of hands the district can no longer afford.
Thornton said he'll also reorganize the central office, resulting in an unspecified number of layoffs. The system hired a consultant Thornton said has brought to light inefficiencies such as analysts in different departments doing essentially the same job.
"They found things like the fact that I have five call centers," he said. "IBM doesn't even have five call centers."
Democrats vow to fight Hogan education cuts Union leaders were cool to the idea of losing jobs. Marietta English, president of the Baltimore Teachers Union, said Wednesday through a spokesman: "It is very disappointing that we have not had the opportunity to discuss this plan involving the termination of BTU members.
"Our contract addresses how reduction in force is conducted, so we look forward to conversing with Dr. Thornton about how this will be carried out," she said.
Public School Administrators and Supervisors Association President Jimmy Gittings, who represents administrators, said of the surplus pool that 20 are members of his union, and he will look for those staffers to be reassigned to schools. He acknowledged some members would also be cut in the reorganization.
"I've said this is unacceptable to me," Gittings said. "I am willing to, as a last resort, present to our membership the possibility of renegotiating the contract to look at no raises this year to avoid any layoffs."
Thornton defended staff reductions, saying, "We have a strategy that I think is so comprehensive that it far exceeds a cutting of the budget, it begins to lay a framework of the future of our city.
"Here's my challenge: create a world-class school district for kids, in a business framework with long-term sustainability," he said.
Salary increases under a new teachers union contract have applied pressure on the budget. Since 2012, classroom teacher salaries have risen by $10 million while the number of teachers decreased by 259.
Lawmakers who have been waiting to hear Thornton's plan said it seems he is heading in the right direction.
"I think it's important for him to demonstrate that the deficit he has projected is under control," said City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke, who chairs the City Council's education committee.
"We're working hard in Annapolis to resuscitate the $35 million, and we need to demonstrate that our own house is in order here in Baltimore," she said. "So, he's right to be working on that."
Thornton also wants to negotiate with unions to curb health care costs, which rose by $4 million last year and $7 million the year before. He said packages need a "complete reorganization," but anticipates the district could save $2 million to $3 million just by cutting off separated spouses and overage children.
But altering health care provisions could be a tough sell.
"Baltimore administrators have the best health care in the country," Gittings said, adding the only way he could consider a change would be with approval of his entire membership.
Thornton said other cuts include capping the number of temporary employees, an expense that cost the district more than $4 million so far this year, and renegotiating contracts to trim transportation costs. He called a $5 million allocation to transport some students in taxis an "outrage."
He also identified $15 million low-hanging fruit" that could be cut in meals, trips and costs incurred to use up money at the end of a fiscal year.
"A lot of this is just cultural, and we just need to start asking, 'Does this [purchase] impact kids,'" he said. "If you fix the small stuff, the big stuff will take care of itself."
He said nearly $15 million in savings was found by ending a practice that allocates a per pupil amount to schools even for students that have transferred to another school — essentially paying for those students twice. Thornton said that was the system's way of not penalizing schools when students transfer, but is a practice that has to change.
"You can't have it both ways," Thornton said.
He also wants to revisit a formula by which charter schools get funding — about $9,000 annually per pupil — to compensate for the fact that those schools don't use central office services.
Even with Thornton's proposed $63 million in reductions and if the state restores the $35 million, there will still be a $10 million deficit. He said he would look at additional cuts in areas he's already identified.
Thornton has not presented a budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, but last year's allocation was $1.3 billion.
He said the upcoming budget will seek $14 million for new programs. He wants to put art and intramural sports in schools and fund "lead teachers" in struggling schools. He also wants a $5 million expansion of academic technology.
"I'm not going to have a budget that just cuts," he said. "I have to have investments in kids."
Schools will feel a crunch in the coming budget year, Thornton said, because the amount of per-pupil funding will remain flat but costs, such as personnel, will increase.
"What I really feel good about is that we have not left any stone unturned," he said.
Shanaysha Sauls, president of the city school board, said the board believes Thornton is "being really strategic, surgical, in terms of thinking about cost savings." It is a skill set that contributed to his appointment, she said.
In Milwaukee, where he served as superintendent until last year, Thornton faced several shortfalls — including one that topped $100 million. That led him to cut nearly 1,000 positions, lay off 500 educators — he brought some back the following year — increase class sizes and eliminate transportation for elementary school students.
And as a result of Wisconsin law that all but did away with collective bargaining, he was able to renegotiate health benefits, freeing up millions.
Sauls said the board has not received a comprehensive plan from Thornton, but he's on the right track.
"We want to make sure that people understand that we can pay our bills, and we pass a balanced budget every year," she said. "He's thinking about sustainability, and the expenditures that are way out of control. That's the right approach."
PUGH has since she was in Baltimore City Hall been behind the movement of education funds from our Baltimore City Schools and leaving no revenue to fund them from the city because she as others were committed to the Wall Street Baltimore Development Master Plan of global corporate campuses in a US International Economic Zone---so she allowed surrounding communities to decay----she was behind slowly defunding all public structures that supported education in these communities as all revenue went to East Baltimore, downtown, and Harbor East. Yes, she had the voice to fight this---that was her duty to the people in her district. From the Maryland Assembly she was the one pushing all laws deregulating education so for-profit higher-education took funding that would have sent a student to our 4 year public universities---and that was why Morgan State's enrollment dropped and will be the cause of it closing. She was front and center in being that leader of a for-profit in the midst of a trillion dollars for-profit industry fraud of low-income students as in Baltimore. They all knew these frauds were happening---they simply used low-income citizens to move Federal education funding to what many people shouted decades ago were rip-offs for those students. Pugh then pushed the same deregulation on K-12 public schools and sent Maryland Assembly education funding to block grants creating tons of corporate non-profits instead of maintaining the public structures students needed.
This last year between Obama and Congress sending billions of dollars to build what will become that same for-profit education corporation for K-12---Maryland Assembly and Baltimore City Hall sent the same revenue that would have gone to our public schools to these education non-profits which will be folded into for-profit global education corporations----AND THEY ALL KNOW THIS IS THE GOAL---AND THEY ALL PRETEND THIS IS GOOD FOR THE POOR STUDENTS.
Remember when in 2008 the Presidential primaries had candidates all saying what the people wanted to hear----and then just as the primary was over-----the 2008 economic crash from the subprime mortgage fraud these same Baltimore pols pushed last decade----turning the 2008 general election for President towards nothing but SAVING THE US ECONOMY. Well, this is the same thing----here we have a candidate going to the general election waxing progressive on her thoughts for Baltimore all knowing this 2016 bond market collapse and economic crash coming later in the year will have the general election for Mayor of Baltimore all about how they will SAVE BALTIMORE----

Pugh, Democratic nominee for Baltimore mayor, says she wants to keep some of city's top officials, fire othersState Sen. Catherine E. Pugh wants Police Commissioner Kevin Davis and Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen to join her administration, the Democratic nominee for mayor said Wednesday.
Pugh, who won Tuesday's primary election and is expected to sail to victory in November, said she wants to build on outgoing Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration but intends to fire embattled Housing Commissioner Paul T. Graziano.
"This is my dream job. If anyone was to ask me what job I would ever want and where I thought I could make the greatest impact, it would be this job," Pugh told The Baltimore Sun. "Everything I have done to this point has prepared me for this."
Pugh beat a dozen candidates to win the Democratic contest, which drew the largest turnout for a Baltimore primary since at least 1999. An analysis of election returns shows she owes her 3-point lead over former Mayor Sheila Dixon, her closest competitor, to a strong turnout for her during the eight-day early voting period this month.
Pugh will face Republican nominee Alan Walden and third-party challengers in November. In Baltimore, where Democrats outnumber Republicans nearly 10 to 1, the winner of the Democratic primary has for decades gone on to become mayor.

Rawlings-Blake, who did not seek re-election, said Wednesday that she has a "very good working relationship" with Pugh and is grateful that while on the campaign trail Pugh told voters she wanted to continue some of Rawlings-Blake's programs.
"Out of the candidates that were running, she was the most clear that she is not interested in dismantling the progress that I've made," said Rawlings-Blake, who became mayor in 2010 when Dixon left office after a misdemeanor conviction for embezzlement.
Rawlings-Blake did not support a candidate during the primary. She pledged Wednesday to help Pugh during her transition into office.
Several express interest in filling Pugh's Senate seat Pugh said she would undertake a full review of city agencies to determine what other top officials she might want to keep in office and who she wants to replace. Pugh said months ago that she would replace Graziano, who came under fire for an alleged sex-for-repairs scandal involving maintenance workers at public housing complexes.
Pugh praised Jason Perkins-Cohen, who Rawlings-Blake appointed a year ago to lead the Mayor's Office of Employment Development. She said she is interested in the "wonderful ideas and energy" of some of the candidates in the Democratic primary, such as engineer Calvin Allen Young III and former bank operations manager Patrick Gutierrez. She said she had not figured out what role, if any, they might play in a Pugh administration.
"I will evaluate where we are, what is good about what we're doing, and what's great about what we're doing and what we can fix," Pugh said.
Pugh said she expects to talk with Rawlings-Blake about steps toward a transition.
T.J. Smith, a police spokesman, said Davis wants to stay on the job. The police commissioner believes he can bring continuity to help stabilize the department.
"He would certainly want to see things through," Smith said. "He is committed to staying on and being a part of the next administration."
Wen said she, too, wants to stay. "I am fully committed to working with Senator Pugh and our other leaders to fight against deep-rooted injustices and to ensure that all of Baltimore's residents can reach their full health potential," she said in a statement.
The primary election, one year after the unrest that rocked the city following the death of Freddie Gray from spinal injuries suffered in police custody, drew 130,000 voters to city polls. The turnout surpassed that for the 2008 primary, which led to the Democratic presidential nomination of then-Sen. Barack Obama; 113,000 voted in Baltimore that year.
The General Assembly voted in 2012 to move the mayoral election to presidential election years to increase voter turnout after a poor showing in the 2011 city primary.
With 97 percent of votes counted, Dixon won the most votes on Election Day, with about 800 more than Pugh. But during early voting from April 14 to April 21, Pugh received about 3,600 more votes than Dixon.
"We campaigned every single day," Pugh said. "No one had as much of a ground game as we did going into this election."
Pugh said she believed she was hurt on Election Day by negative campaigning by her opponents in the final days.
"They were vicious," she said. "They were wrong. They were mean-spirited. ... Negativity at some point impacts others. It changes people's opinions."
Meanwhile, the results of eight precincts and absentee ballots — representing as many as several thousand votes — had yet to be counted. City election chief Armstead B. Crowley Jones Jr. said officials were searching for the missing files.
The Dixon campaign said five of the eight missing precincts are in West Baltimore, where the former mayor's support is strongest.
"Since the first day of early voting, the validity of this election has been in doubt," Dixon spokeswoman Martha McKenna said. "Now there are thousands of votes from West Baltimore that have not been counted and are still missing."
Pugh said she was "not at all worried" about the results of the primary being reversed.
Early voting also proved significant for the winners of the 14 Democratic primaries for City Council. Each candidate who led after early voting ended up winning the race.
In Southeast Baltimore's 1st District, educator Zeke Cohen won a close race with 27 percent of the votes; Councilman Brandon Scott easily carried Northeast Baltimore's 2nd District with 74.5 percent; and newcomer Ryan Dorsey won Northeast Baltimore's 3rd District with 40.4 percent.
In North Baltimore, Councilman Bill Henry fended off a tough challenge in the 4th District, carrying 41.5 percent of the vote; business owner Isaac "Yitzy" Schleifer won narrowly in Northwest Baltimore's 5th District with 33 percent; and incumbent Sharon Green Middleton cruised to victory in Northwest Baltimore's 6th District.
In West Baltimore's 7th District, city official Leon F. Pinkett III won a close race with 24.4 percent of the votes; newcomer Kristerfer Burnett won Southwest Baltimore's 8th District with 29.5 percent; and West Baltimore's 9th District went to Towson University political science professor John Bullock, who unseated incumbent William "Pete" Welch with 50.9 percent.
In South Baltimore, Council Vice President Ed Reisinger narrowly hung on for victory with 37 percent of the votes in the 10th District, while Councilman Eric T. Costello had an impressive showing in the 11th District with 55 percent. Robert Stokes Sr. carried central Baltimore's 12th District with 32.8 percent.
In East Baltimore's 13th District, community activist Shannon Sneed unseated incumbent Warren Branch, while longtime Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke won easily in North Baltimore's 14th District.
City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young and Comptroller Joan M. Pratt easily won their primary races.
Bush's Texas as the leading neo-conservative state beginning this march to global corporate rule and far-right Asian autocratic society in the US shows what the future of 'college'----it is just job training career 'degrees' ----these global job training colleges that will become the replacement for high school. Warnock in Baltimore is starting this with his students getting job training certificates while in high school. They are not the university degrees that lead to strong wages but Wall Street calls them degrees and tracking these students into the lowest tier of jobs.
This online format for global college that will become high school is easy to install on global corporate campuses having that living, eating, schooling, and working structure that is global corporate socialism. So, children of 90% of Americans tied to vocational track schooling will simply plug into these lessons just enough to get them into the global factory assembly line-----
WHAT!!!!! BROAD AND DEMOCRATIC EDUCATION FOR PEOPLE TO BE CITIZENS AND LEADERS! THAT ONLY HAPPENS IF THE US IS A US RULE OF LAW AND US CONSTITUTIONAL NATION----NOT WHEN THE US IS SIMPLY AN ECONOMIC COLONY OF A GLOBAL CORPORATE TRIBUNAL OPERATING US ECONOMIC ZONES JUST AS ASIAN ZONES ARE.
This is of course what Obama and Clinton neo-liberals call community college job training making this free -----in lieu of Federal funding to a strong 4 year university.
CATHERINE PUGH AND ALL MARYLAND ASSEMBLY POLS INSTALLED ALL THE LAWS FOR THIS JUST BECAUSE!

___________________________________________Catherine PUGH was the ground-breaker on this far-right breakdown of our public university structure for what will become 90% of Americans. She was Dean of Strayer----moving citizens from 4 year colleges to online corporate degree programs. They pretend corporations are accepting these degrees everywhere---and no doubt they do----as this is the global model for a global online job training in International Economic Zones preparing children for just the job training they need and not much more.
As Baltimore High Schools close-----these kinds of education programs will attach to the 7th grade movement to apprenticeship and the 9th grade movement to apprenticeship---depending on whether a child is tracked into global factories or sweat shop white collar jobs anywhere a global corporation wants them to go.
Strayer compares itself to ITT, DeVry, Kaplan, and Phoenix online colleges most of which were involved in the trillion dollar for-profit education fraud loading US students with student debt. Did 80,000 Baltimore voters really come out to vote for this? I thought citizens were angry at all this for-profit education debt and fraud.
While Clinton/Bush era built out the for-profit college to replace our strong public universities and then tie them to a global International Economic Zone format----the Obama era was about doing the same to our high schools and so all that Federal funding sent to schools were actually building infrastructure for online high schools---virtual degrees they ensure will be just as accepted by corporations as our once strong public vocational high schools. As Baltimore City pretends debt causes them to close more and more high schools----then middle schools---this is the format they will install. All Clinton neo-liberals in Congress pushed this----all Maryland Assembly pols from Baltimore pushed this and much spending on education in states were directed at these structures. This was the technology infrastructure build out.
These programs allow apprenticed children to attend right on global corporate campuses and will simply train that child for a specific job in that factory ----no fluff of arts and humanities---no citizenship or leadership instilled----just do what you are told.
What is American High School’s Mission?
Our mission is to improve the quality of people’s life, and the community, through the gift of education. We accomplish our mission by providing quality education that effectively breaks the barriers of time and space of the traditional school system to offer an alternative program that is:

With online learning, motivated teens don’t need to be held back by classes that require four months (one semester) to complete. Instead, they can choose American High School which allows students to finish courses as fast as they are able to complete the coursework. Many of our high school graduates have earned their diplomas and moved on to college one or two years ahead of their peers'.
'Online Schools Home > Middle School'
It's all about convenience for our 90% of children in the US----since extreme national, state, and city debt will not allow funding for public schools and universities and with our existing school building crumbling---we may as well close high schools and middle schools and move everyone online----and this can be attached to their 7th grade apprenticeships on global corporate campuses-----
BYE BYE AMERICAN PUBLIC EDUCATION---HELLO ONE WORLD INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC ZONES LIKE BALTIMORE.
'Online Schools Home > Middle School
Families love the convenience of online middle schools. Students can learn any time, anywhere through web-based classrooms available live and on demand. No more dropping the kids off during rush hour. No more waiting for the bus in the rain'.'
WalMart or Bank of America may not pay taxes and Wall Street banks may defraud our government of trillions of dollars---but they are ready to be good corporate citizens to move US students into these corporate education structures with maybe a decade of funding. Once the structures are built of course no funding---you are on your own on that global UnderArmour campus with their global factories ready to provide the only education a child will receive. All that talk of broad education building citizens and leaders-----that is not what MOVING FORWARD IN THE 21ST CENTURY IS ABOUT THEY SAY!
