Baltimore needs Alonso

March 22, 2011

Now that your readers have indicated, by a wide margin, that they question CEO Andrés Alonso's commitment to the Baltimore schools (What Maryland thinks," March 22), I hope the results of this informal poll do not affect Mr. Alonso's ultimate decision.

A better question might have been "With Mr. Alonso's contract soon up for renewal, should he stay or go?" The Baltimore schools CEO would then have seen overwhelming support from your readership, and Baltimore might have a better chance of keeping Mr. Alonso — the best thing that has happened to Baltimore schools in many years.
