The Baltimore City school system is underfunded and behind in terms of quality education. Careless teachers in some high schools in Baltimore pass a student along to the next grade knowing that the student was failing throughout the school year.

Some high school counselors are ineffective in terms of properly guiding the students for success in their futures beyond high school. Other than private schools, there are only a few decent high schools in the city that can ensure a useful education for the students.

Baltimore City students are in dire need of guidance and administrators who actually care about their future. They need college planning, financial literacy, jobs, and selfless teachers, counselors, and principals who view them as more than a statistic.
