NaturalNews – Even though it spends more per pupil than every other large school district in the country save for two, Baltimore City Public Schools is failing to teach students even the basics they need to get by in life. Reports indicate that at least six schools in the district failed this past year to produce even one single student who was proficient in either English or math. An investigation by Project Baltimore found that five high schools and one middle school in the district should pretty much be shut down at this point because they’re serving no useful purpose whatsoever. Booker T. Washington Middle School, Frederick Douglass High School, Achievement Academy at Harbor City, New Era Academy, Excel Academy at Francis M. Wood High, and New Hope Academy all failed to pass even just one student that met the minimum requirements for exceptional proficiency in either of the two subjects. Frederick Douglass High School had the worst results out of all six schools. With 185 students in total, a shocking 165 of them achieved a 1/5 on the proficiency scale, with 1 indicating that these students in no way met proficiency expectations. Nineteen students partially met expectations ranking at 2/5, but were still considered to be not proficient. Only one student scored a 3/5 for “approaching expectations,” though even this one was dubbed not proficient. Not a single student at Frederick Douglass achieved a 4/5 or a 5/5, which would have put them in the proficient category.
