David Hornbeck is a local legend in the education circles and joined us for a “before school starts” set of episodes of Baltimore Positive at Faidley’s in Lexington Market.
A self-described “child advocate,” Hornbeck has been ornery in fighting for the rights of children to be educated throughout his life from East Texas to Baltimore to Philadelphia and back to Maryland again.
His story and vision is told during this trio of Baltimore Positive episodes as we send the kids back to school in America.
This finale got spicy as Mohler and Hornbeck described the frustrations of trying to make the education system better in modern America.
