BSA is competitive — just like the real world [Letter]

May 24, 2014

I am currently a student at the Baltimore School for the Arts. I feel that the article "Who is responsible for Jabril?" (May 19) misrepresents BSA because it blames the institution for one person's decisions. The real art world is highly competitive, and BSA tells everyone at the beginning of their high school career the expectations they must meet to stay in. In this case, BSA did give the student multiple opportunities to stay, but he was the one who chose to leave. A good school should not be blamed for one student's failure.
