Nicole Taylor, an eighth grader at Central Middle School, said she never bothered to do her homework during elementary school. She had more important things to do, such as cook dinner for her siblings when her drug-addicted mother wasn't home. When Nicole was in fourth grade, she and her sisters moved in with their grandparents in Edgewater. Her mother lived with them sporadically, depending on whether she was using. When they argued, Nicole buried herself in books or listened to rock music.

The principals of Anne Arundel County's 19 middle schools were given three options yesterday for getting their pupils into physical education and fine arts classes by the second semester, as required by the state. But county educators would rather not do it at all. Moments after giving the principals the freedom to choose what's best for their schools, the county school board voted unanimously to ask the state Board of Education for a waiver from its requirement. Almost two months ago, the state board told Arundel schools that they were violating curriculum regulations that require all middle school pupils to take physical education and fine arts every year.
