Joe Nathanson: Transform Baltimore by building schools and neighborhoods

With students having returned to their classrooms across Baltimore, it’s a brand new school year with many changes ahead. The school system itself is in transition with the departure of CEO Andres A. Alonso. The interim CEO, Tisha Edwards, must boost academic achievement while implementing a new curriculum aligned to the Common Core standards being adopted by most states. At the same time she will be launching the decade-long campaign to transform the physical facilities where students do their learning.
