Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andres Alonso is the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Baltimore City Public School System in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Alonso came to Baltimore from the New York City Public School system in July 2007. He had been deputy chancellor In New York for the year prior to his appointment in Baltimore. Alonso graduated from Columbia University, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, earned a law degree at Harvard University School of Law and then an Ed.M. in 1999 and Ed.D. in 2006 at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Prior to his arrival in 2007, the Baltimore City Public Schools system was in a state of decay and decline with several of its schools performing so poorly that the state of Maryland was poised to intervene and take over much of the system. Fewer than half of students entering Baltimore's high schools graduated and proficiency levels in reading and math were far below both the state and national averages. By 2010 both state elected and local elected officials were touting the job done by Alonzo in turning the failing school system around.show more
