Tuesday was report card day in schools all across Maryland.

Not the students’ grades this time. The schools themselves are being rated with the results online for all the world to see.

Prince George’s County Schools — the focus of much negative press in recent years — grades out reasonably well as a system, according to acting CEO Monica Goldson.

“We are pleased with the rating from our school system,” Goldson said. “We had over 80 percent of our schools receive a three-, four- or five-star rating."
