Schools In Eight Counties At Risk For Sanctions

According to an AP report picked up by many news outlets, and a separate Post report
school systems in Prince George's and seven other counties have been added to the Maryland Department of Education "watch list."

As a result, a third of Maryland's school systems, including two of the largest, are now labeled as failures.

The Department of Education seems to be placing all the blame on local school systems, but the high rate of failure suggests that this is a statewide, not just local, problem.

So why isn't the press making the connection? Shouldn't the state education officials be held accountable for the spreadring statewide failure?
