The Baltimore city school board has voted to close six schools at the end of the school year, but spared two other schools from immediate closure after protests from the community. The Baltimore Sun says the schools to close are Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy-East; Baltimore Civitas Middle/High School; Baltimore Talent Development High School; Baltimore Antioch Diploma Plus High School; Baltimore Liberation Diploma Plus High School; and the Friendship Academy of Science and Technology. Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy-West and Baltimore Community High School were saved from immediate closure.
