BALTIMORE - The community action group Transform Baltimore held a meeting Thursday night to try to draw attention to what it says are rundown city schools. Concerned parents shared stories about broken school doors, buildings without adequate heat or air conditioning, and a lack of available drinking water.
Transform Baltimore says 70 percent of the city's schools need to be replaced or need major renovations. The group has developed a $2.8 million pan to modernize city schools over 8 years. They are trying to gain support from local officials and state lawmakers.
