As federal education standards grow more stringent, more Maryland schools are failing to make the grade - 241 last school year, up from 196 the year before, according to Maryland State Department of Education statistics released yesterday.

Most of the schools added to the list of those not making "adequate yearly progress" are in Baltimore City, and Prince George's and Montgomery counties, with a few from Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties.
