Education Week Ranks Maryland Schools Nation's Best

Maryland schools have once again been named the top public school system in the country by the trade publication Education Week. The magazine's annual report card gives Maryland a B-plus, far above the national average of C. New York ranked second, and Massachusetts was third. The survey looks at factors including student performance on national tests, how well schools are financed and the overall chance of success in school a student has while living in a specific state. State Schools Superintendent Nancy Grasmick says the ranking shows that "Maryland is the place to live if you want your child to get a high-quality education." Gov. Martin O'Malley says the ranking is a credit to Maryland's commitment to fully funding schools and retaining good teachers even in tough economic times.
