An article in yesterday's editions about a proposed high school in northeast Baltimore County misstated the number of funding requests for construction projects the state's Public School Construction Program has received this year.

The agency has received 127 funding requests and recommended approval of 44. It has received 85 planning requests and recommended approval of six.

A headline in yesterday's Today section incorrectly characterized Rabbi A. James Rudin's reaction to Mel Gibson's film The Passion of Christ. Though he advised Jewish leaders not to boycott it, Rudin did not give the film his blessing and criticized its portrayal of Jews. He urged Jewish leaders to use the movie as "a teachable moment" for Christians and Jews alike on how the story of Christ's death has been "used and abused" to fuel anti-Semitism.

The Sun regrets the errors.
