SHAYLIN TODD v. BALTIMORE CITY BOARD OF SCHOOL COMMISSIONERS ET AL.

Administrative law — Revocation of certification — Substantial evidence

In this administrative agency appeal, Shaylin Todd, the appellant, a former principal at Fort Worthington Elementary School, challenges the decision of Lillian M.
