At 13 Baltimore City High Schools, No One is Proficient in Math

By Brian Massie, A Watchman on the Wall

When we look at proficiency scores in Lake County School Districts and in the State of Ohio, it is very clear that there is a definite problem in public education. From this article we see that Ohio is not the only State experiencing poor education. There appears to be a purposeful dumbing down of our children. Homeschooling may be the only way to reverse this trend.

Excerpts from the article:

BALTIMORE (WBFF) — The latest round of state test results is raising alarm in Baltimore City Schools. Project Baltimore found that 40% of Baltimore City high schools, where the state exam was given, did not have any students score proficient in math. Not one student.

“This is educational homicide,” said Jason Rodriguez, deputy director of People Empowered by the Struggle, a Baltimore-based nonprofit.

In 2021, the group held rallies calling on Baltimore City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises to resign over low test scores, falling graduation rates, and a lack of transparency. Now, after seeing what Project Baltimore discovered, Rodriguez is renewing those calls.

“There is no excuse,” he said. “We have a system that’s just running rogue, and it starts at the top.”

Fox45 obtained unredacted state test results for every school in Baltimore City through a source within the school system, and the results are hard to believe.

Students took the tests in the spring of 2023, just a few months ago. Project Baltimore found 13 Baltimore City high schools where not one student who took the state math test scored proficient in math. Not one student.
