6 Baltimore schools, no students proficient in state tests

BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- A Project Baltimore investigation has found five Baltimore City high schools and one middle school do not have a single student proficient in the state tested subjects of math and English.

We sat down with a teen who attends one of those schools and has overcome incredible challenges to find success.

Navon Warren grew up in West Baltimore. He was three months old when his father was shot to death. Before his 18th birthday, he would lose two uncles and a classmate, all gunned down on the streets of Baltimore.

“I’ve lost a lot of people, so I’m used to it. It hurts,” Warren said. “I just chose not to show it. I just keep it in. You just have to live on and keep going on every day. You have to do it somehow.”

cant pass the state tests then they wont graduate! This starts at HOME! The parents have to be involved with the kids! Then it moves on to the teachers! You can't tell me that there isn't one smart kid in 6 schools in baltimore! If there isn't then YES THE TEACHERS ARE A CAUSE!

What is the common denominator?

No the State didn't!! Larry Hogan did. He is sucking up for the Democrat vote in the next election.

1:53 and the problem with that is? If he doesn't get some of the democrat vote then we end up with a democrat governor instead of a republic.

Believe me it is not the teachers fault

Imagine you are a 3rd grade teacher. You stand in front of the class and try to present a concept to 25 students. Perhaps 5 listen. Some are sleeping. (Perhaps the people that their parents partied with last night kept them awake. Or maybe this child was caring for a younger sister while his parents worked and he was to afraid to sleep). Two are playing with the fidget spinner. The teacher stops teaching to confiscate the spinners. One child hands his over. The other child refuses and turns over his desk and throws a chair. Now administration must be called to deal with this. The teacher attempts to restart the lesson. The phone rings. A parent calls to complain that yesterday her child was bullied by another child. The teacher promises to look into the matter. A quick look at the clock before starting again. The clock reads 8:55. Welcome to a public school classroom. THOSE WHO BLAME TEACHERS ARE FOOLS!
