Baltimore parents sue city after student graduates high school not being able to read; shocking number of students have failing GPAs

In a recent interview with the Daily Signal, the Pattersons said, “There’s really no other recourse a citizen in Baltimore could take.

Two parents in Baltimore, Maryland, have filed a lawsuit against their city and its school district in response to shocking reports about the progressive city’s abject failure to educate children.
