Teacher Steve Butz had a delightful problem the first day of school: There weren't enough chairs.He had 19 adult students, four more than expected for his second class of the day, a 10: 40 a.m. remedial reading and writing session. Before class could begin, he had to run to the computer lab to grab extra seats.Such are the problems of the COIL Learning Bank, Baltimore's largest private adult literacy program, which has seen demand for its services boom since moving three weeks ago from two nondescript rowhouses at 1223 W. Baltimore St. to new quarters across the road at 1200 W. Baltimore St. More than 200 people have enrolled for the current eight-week session, up sharply from the 150 students of a year ago."
