Statement from BTU President, Marietta English on Baltimore Sun Article from 02/18/15: "City schools face $60 million deficit even without state cuts"
Baltimore, MD- Baltimore City's impending budget deficit is a serious problem that needs to be addressed. Any suggestion that the teacher contract is in large part responsible for the school system's deficit is not earnest on its face.
Public recognition comes rarely for school support personnel, but back-to-school season last fall provided a windfall of publicity for school bus drivers, bus attendants and cafeteria workers in southwestern Florida.
Are charter school teachers and staff in danger of losing their hard fought union rights? Oppose Changes to the Charter School Law.
Charter schools play an important role in public education in Baltimore City. One main reason why Maryland ranks so high when it comes to education is because we have charter schools that work. Maryland has consistently high public school rankings in large part because of our strong charter school law.
