Maryland Educational System Above Average Nationally

December 27th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

A little more than a year ago, Maryland’s public school system achieved top-in-the-nation status for the fourth consecutive year- and it’s a recognition that Governor Martin O’Malley is not ready to give up. The state was given an overall grade of B-plus by Education Week, which publishes the annual report. The average grade for the nation was a C. Virginia came in fourth with a B. And the District came in 49th, just ahead of Nebraska and South Dakota, with an overall grade of C-minus. The evaluation includes dozens of indicators of student achievement, academic standards and accountability, teacher quality and school finance.  O’Malley said not enough can be said about the importance of obtaining a top notch education.
