Maryland Democrats in the Maryland State House don't care about Black kids in Baltimore City schools which have been failing kids for 9 years.
From Monday's Baltimore Sun:
With just one vote to spare, the Senate today overrode Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s veto of a bill that would stall the state from taking over 11 failing Baltimore schools.
Voting 30-17, the Senate joined the House in defeating the governor's veto. The bill would put a one-year moratorium on the state's move to assume control of four high schools and put seven middle schools into the hands of independent operators by the fall of 2007.
Before the vote, Sen. Nathaniel J. McFadden, a Baltimore City Democrat, urged his colleagues to remember that this is an issue of "courtesy and local control."
"I'd like to thank the members of the Senate who were supportive of this effort," McFadden said. "The students and the citizens of Baltimore thank those who have gotten behind us."
McFadden ain't nuthin.
for the history.
This isn't the first time McFadden has worked against the interest of Blacks in Baltimore.
