I read with interest that the goal of the city's program for ending homelessness is to reduce shelter stays to fewer than 90 days, at a cost of roughly $40,000 a year ("Aid for street people failing," March 18).

A dual degree program that will debut in Baltimore County high schools next summer will allow qualified students to pursue college courses as early as their sophomore year and earn an associate of arts degree along with a high school diploma. The partnership between county schools and the Community College of Baltimore County will save parents money, challenge motivated students and allow 18-year-olds to transfer to a four-year college as juniors. The county will recruit candidates for its Diploma to Degree program, believed to be the first in the state, in the spring from the current class of high school freshmen.
