Andres Alonso, Baltimore’s CEO of public schools, thinks that too many school districts are stuck in their ways.

“In most school systems, there’s a huge gravitational pull for doing the same thing. So we shouldn’t expect different outcomes.”

Alonso was recently interviewed by CNN regarding the transformation Baltimore schools have seen in recent years.

Baltimore City public schools were underperforming, with less than half of students graduating and test scores that were well under the national average.
