...Northwood missed the graduation rate target for all students...Do you think the $140 fee that is charged to Northwood students to participate in graduation had any impact on that statistic?
Please note, the Maryland Constitution still provides for a free public education for Maryland children. Isn't graduation the culmination of a free public education?
We know from the Washington Post that a 50% increase in the MCPS after school activity fee resulted in a 20% drop in participation. The actual fee increase was from $20 to $30, and netted an estimated loss of over 6,000 MCPS students participating in after school activities.
