Fictional Baltimore Mayor Declares Victory On Education

By Alexander Russo — October 18, 2007 1 min read

Just like in real life. As you may recall, last year’s season of The Wire, HBO’s gritty convoluted tale about cops and criminals and kids in Baltimore, focused in part on the opportunistic decision by the mayor to focus on school reform.

And of course this mayor has moved on already to another issue without really solving the underlying problems.
