  Baltimore City Public Schools are facing a serious deficit: more than $70 million – and, that doesn’t take into account a budget cut proposed by Gov. Hogan which would put the deficit at more than $100 million. Gregory Thornton, CEO of Baltimore City Public Schools has outlined how he plans to close that budget gap – by cutting surplus employees and trimming administrative staff. He joins Sheilah in the studio to talk about it.

More of our interview with Gregory Thornton, including questions about the school police force and standardized testing.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
