Maryland Taking Over 11 Baltimore Schools

11 Baltimore schools are going to be taken over by Maryland after the state board of education approved the move.

Specifically, the state will take over 4 high schools and direct the city to find a 3rd party to manage 7 middle schools. The takeover is being done under the auspices of the No Child Left Behind Act's accountability provisions.

"It's time for the state's frustration with the lack of progress, the failure to deal with problems more seriously in a timely manner, to be expressed in action. Today is that day," said Ed Root, Maryland State Board of Education chairman.
