A look at three education battles in Maryland. Dan talks with Liz Bowie, education reporter for The Baltimore Sun, about the controversial Common Core curriculum. Then: Harford County Executive David Craig and Ryan Burbey of the Harford County Education Association, on what Burbey says is a dire lack of adequate school funding there. Finally, a look at controversial class schedule changes taking place in Baltimore County with Superintendent Dallas Dance and Wendy Flowers, a Hereford parent speaking for Hereford Works, a group that opposes the changes.

The new Common Core curriculum has come under attack from parents and teachers nationwide.
