Baltimore City College is celebrating another historic title this week, as national champions of the prestigious National Association for Urban Debate League Championship, held in Washington, D.C. last week. The school's team won the title after engaging in a heated debate about whether the U.S. federal government should substantially increase its transportation infrastructure investment in the country, according to a release from the school. The school's debate team--students Sophie Bauerschmidt Sweeney and Dikshant Malla successfully--took on the affirmative, using the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina, to seal its victory against Chicago's Whitney Young High School in a 2-1 decision.

As a parent of Baltimore City Public School students, I take great offense to the commentary, "City principals call for funding forums" (May 22), written by five BCPS principals. I find it offensive that, while they do highlight the numerous and substantial costs charters must pay from their budgets that traditional schools do not, they ignore a more important element which is that parents and students deserve choice - choice in curriculum, school facilities and program models. My older daughter graduated from Baltimore City College in the International Baccalaureate program.

I am a proud Baltimore City College and Roland Park Middle School alumna who now attends the University of Maryland. I want to thank the City College and Polytechnic Institute students, alumni, friends and teachers whose lobbying efforts helped secure funding for the gifted programs that allowed me to receive a quality education in Baltimore and will - as of Tuesday night's school board vote - continue to provide opportunities to city kids. My academic journey began in an elementary school in my West Baltimore neighborhood.

The rumor was that the president of the United States was going to appear at Baltimore City College on Thursday, so teacher Mark Miazga swapped his usual polo for a shirt and tie in case he got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity before resuming his day of teaching Steinbeck. But it wasn't long into the assembly at City College - whose marching band, cheerleaders and choir showcased their talents and set a festive tone for 600 students, political leaders, and state and local education officials - that Miazga was stunned by the announcement that he was the guest of honor.

As a high school senior at Baltimore City College in 1989, Bala Ambati had some rather lofty goals, telling the yearbook he aspired "to become a doctor, win the Nobel Prize and help humanity. " By then Ambati already stood apart from his 12th grade-classmates: He was 11 years old. After graduating from City, Ambati's exceptional arc continued. It took him only two years to polish off a biology degree at New York University. At 13, he slowed down, taking the usual four years to earn a medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

DOWNLOAD: Abdu Ali, "Push + Slay" Sitting outside a Mid-Town Belvedere coffee shop on a warm October afternoon, Abdu Ali Eaton was dressed a lot like his music sounds. He wore beat-to-hell pink-and-yellow Adidas high-tops, black sweatpants that scrunch at the bottom and a vintage Cosby sweater that peaked through a buttoned-up oversize camouflage jacket. It's a messy, couldn't-care-less-what-anyone-thinks collage that defies categorization, yet somehow works in the 23-year-old's hands.
