3 things to know about Carey Wright, Maryland’s interim state superintendent of schools

October 13, 2023
Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, this photograph depicts a typical classroom scene, where an audience of school children were seated on the floor before a teacher at the front of the room, who was reading an illustrated storybook, during one of the scheduled classroom sessions. Assisting the instructor were two female students to her left, and a male student on her right, who was holding up the book, while the seated classmates were raising their hands to answer questions related to the story just read.

Wright must also repair relationships with state lawmakers, members of the Accountability and Implementation board — a which oversees the Blueprint — and internal staff. Some former staff members accused Choudhury of creating a toxic workplace in the state education department. “I do believe that [the Blueprint] is a golden opportunity for the state, and I don’t take that lightly,” Wright said. She was joined Wednesday by Clarence Crawford and Josh Michael, president and vice president of the Maryland State Board of Education.
