Baltimore charter school opens new campus

Hundreds of Baltimore students have started 2014 on a new campus that officials hope will become a national model for urban education reform. The Baltimore Sun reports that Elmer A. Henderson School, run by the Johns Hopkins University and Morgan State University, has welcomed more than 350 students who have been waiting several years to move from small portable classrooms to the 90,000-square-foot building. The K-8 school is the cornerstone project of a $1.8 billion public-private effort to revitalize East Baltimore.
