“In line with the experience of many school districts across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic caused serious disruption to student learning,” the Baltimore Municipal School said in a statement. “As early as the summer of 2020, municipal schools identified a large number of students with poor average grades and classroom grades compared to past grades.”
The shift happened after the school was closed for online learning COVID-19 (New Coronavirus Infection)At that time, only 24% of high school students in the city were below 1.0 GPA, so the data for 2019-2020 show.
“This is terrible, which further perpetuates the cycle of poverty and despair,” said Giovani Patterson, who ran for Baltimore City Council Chairman in 2020.
“If almost half of our kids are failing, what options do we have after graduating from high school? This is really disappointing. It’s sad to see this,” Patterson added.
In contrast to the percentage of students who almost failed, 21% of high school students at Baltimore City School earned a GPA of 3.0, or B average.
