Today, a conversation with the CEO of the Baltimore City Public Schools about a range of issues affecting the 85,000 students in one of the country’s largest school districts. We’ll talk about school violence and school policing strategies, progress on the goals in the schools’ new strategic plan, the status of the $2 billion dollar school construction initiative, and the dismal results as students took, for the first time, a test called Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. We’ll assess his first 18 months on the job.

Plus, be honest: does this show make me look fat? The Nutrition Diva, Monica Reinagel on whether or not our idea of what overweight is, has evolved over the last 30 years.
