  1. Howard county schools are the worst of the worst. The corrupt board and superintendent work tirelessly to deprive students, especially those with special needs, of a free appropriate public education. From the Zum bus contract to the endless cuts to staffing, this district should be at the bottom of the list.

  2. This isn’t all of them. What about PG, Anne Arundel, Baltimore County…?
    I was expecting a lot more than 5…

    1. Can’t even access the full list. Come on . You forget there are other counties in this area we’d like to know rank on?
