  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.
