When Obama passed his historic $787 billion economic stimulus bill after taking office, $1.8 billion was allocated specifically for Baltimore and a single Baltimore zip code (21201) received the most, a total of $837,955,866.

Baltimore City Public Schools spends 50% more per student than the national average. Despite that, thirteen of Baltimore’s 39 high schools had zero students proficient in math, and six where only one percent test proficient.
