http://baltileaks.org/ is one of the newest independent media websites in Baltimore. Last month they began their call for the leak of documents of "legitimate public value to the citizens of Baltimore." Describing themselves as acting "with journalist intent" they have released a variety of documents, most of them already public information, on their site and through their twitter feed. Aimee Pohl from The Indypendent Reader interviewed them via email.
More than one hundred students, parents, teachers and advocates filled the cafeteria at Digital Harbor High School on Thursday, January 13th for the Baltimore Education Coalition Leadership Workshop and Action. They came together to learn more about fighting the potential cuts for education funding in Governor O’Malley’s budget proposal, expected to be released later this month. Baltimore City Schools rely on state aid more than any other Maryland County System, dependant on it for more than 65% of its funding.
