Civil rights group says too many city school facilities are in poor condition

From The Baltimore Sun: The American Civil Liberties Union is calling on state and city leaders to address a $2.8 billion need for renovations to Baltimore schools by developing a more creative and equitable way to pay for school construction throughout Maryland. The ACLU contends that despite increases in school construction dollars in recent years, many city schools are still deteriorating and at current funding levels it would take 50 years for them to be in good condition.
