Eight years ago, then Baltimore City Schools Superintendent Dr. Andres Alonso brought independent school leaders together to discuss education in Baltimore City.  He asked them to suggest ways to improve the city’s school system.  Their solution: start a new charter school for girls that would serve a larger percentage of the population and live on beyond their administrations. The suggestion resulted in the creation of the Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School in Govans.
