October 17th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Dr. Carey Wright doesn’t officially start her job as Maryland’s interim State School Superintendent until October 23, but she is already hoping to make her temporary gig a permanent one.  She just retired in June from a similar position in Mississippi where her main achievement was to boost the state’s reading scores – called the “Mississippi Miracle.” She is getting up to speed on the state’s Blueprint for Education initiative and looking at the all-important data from school testing.  She has referred to the state’s math testing scores as “abysmal.”
