Deposed Howard County Superintendent John R. O'Rourke has a new job: interim superintendent at a small school district in upstate New York. O'Rourke, whose contract was not renewed by the Howard school board in January, will be appointed interim schools chief for the 9,500-student Shenendehowa Central School District at a meeting Tuesday, according to its school board president, Gary DiLallo. O'Rourke, who came to Howard County in 2000 as a highly regarded administrator, left in February after a tumultuous school year that included two grade-tampering controversies and his public falling-out with the five-member board.

First assignment for Baltimore's new food czarina: Get Tony Geraci a big kitchen. Mr. Geraci is the high-energy, red-tape-intolerant director of food and nutrition services for the city schools, which constitute ground zero in the battle over childhood obesity and bad eating habits for Baltimore. On the job since 2008, Mr. Geraci is at the point where he needs a centralized kitchen to take his ambitions to the next level, and getting him one should be a top priority for the Rawlings-Blake administration and Holly Freishtat, the city's new food consultant.

Students across Harford County will be boarding school buses for the first time this week. In 1912, students were boarding "The Kid Wagon." Harford was one of the first counties in Maryland to offer a transportation system for the schools. After several one-room schools were closed and a central school, the Highland School, was built, students would have to walk as far as three miles. Mrs. George E. Harkins was employed to transport the children from the Mine Branch District. "The Kid Wagon" was a horse-drawn spring wagon, usually driven by the older school boys.

NEW YORK - Six weeks into its reincarnation as the headquarters of the New York City school system, the Tweed Courthouse has forced its 600 new inhabitants to make major adjustments. For veterans of 110 Livingston St., the famously dismal buildings in downtown Brooklyn that housed the central school administration for 63 years, the sunlight dappling the halls of Tweed - filtered through the stained-glass skylight of a dazzling rotunda, no less - has been shocking. "From the catacombs to the cathedral, right?"

At the beginning of the year, Debbie Cottrill handed out copies of the book My Friend with Autism to children in her son's class at Central Elementary School in Edgewater. She attached letters to parents explaining that Dean has autism and asked parents to go over the book with their children. Cottrill wants Dean's second-grade classmates to understand that he suffers from a neurological disorder that makes him shrink away from them when he is touched. She wants them to know that he wears headphones in the cafeteria because the lunchroom chatter hurts his hypersensitive ears.

When the Baltimore City school system recently laid off nearly 40 percent of all central administrators - about 300 employees - many principals and classroom teachers might have been less than disappointed by the decimation of central curriculum positions. Many educators share the general public's perceptions about a bloated bureaucracy. But there is a deeper, more troubling explanation: the fierce, often underground battle in the education wars over control of what teachers teach and how they teach it. Those closest to the classroom resent growing central authority over the design and delivery of instruction.
