MDBE Superintendent Choudhury dodge questions about the reporting of test scores

May 3rd, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Maryland State Superintendent of Schools, Mohammed Choudhury, is continuing to dodge questions about the reporting of test scores casting Baltimore City Schools in a particularly bad light and he is now putting blame on the web vendor for posting data that had been embargoed.  At a recent State Board of Education meeting, Choudhury walked out of a meeting and hid behind a locked door to avoid speaking with reporters.  Locally, WCBC spoke with Allegany County School Superintendent Jeff Blank who said that the county’s test data is correct and not showing any redacted or missing information.  Blank also said he hasn’t had any issues with the State Superintendent and that his main focus is on student performance in Allegany County.

Superintendent Blank also said that student test results that are released to the public differ from what the school system receives.
