Transform Baltimore

After a number of rallies and speeches featuring kids and teachers, a $2.4 billion school-rebuilding project is half-funded—with borrowed money. The city’s schools desperately need work, but the plan underway was adapted from a semi-rural South Carolina county that was facing massive population and job growth from new and expanding factories, while the Baltimore plan is predicated on the idea that the school construction itself will spur growth. Most taxpayers never heard of it until it was done, of course, and fewer still understood the project or its long-term implications.
