WASHINGTON - During Bernadine Healy's tumultuous final six months as president of the American Red Cross, the nonprofit agency awarded her $1.9 million. As a result, Healy's replacement, former Rear Adm. Marsha Evans, and the agency's board have launched separate reviews of the way the Red Cross compensates its senior employees. Healy wept in public frustration when she was forced out of the top American Red Cross job in the tense and confusing aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the fall of 2001.

After reading the recent letter from Hamilton Elementary Middle School parents, it is clear there are severe misperceptions floating around about Baltimore City public charter schools ( "MarylandCAN isn't interested in kids but in pushing an anti-public school agenda," June 5). Charter schools are public schools like Hamilton, they get their funding from the Baltimore City Public Schools system and their teachers are Baltimore City public school teachers. Moreover, the type of kids served by charters are the same as those served by traditional public schools.

'TC Maryland will collect $2.6 million in taxes this year earmarked for regulation of state-chartered savings and loan associations. But regulating the thrifts will cost only $84,000.In fact, there are only two state-chartered thrifts left to regulate. So lobbyists for the industry want to do away with the 30-year-old tax on deposits that pays for the remnants of regulation.The House Ways and Means Committee is to take up a bill tomorrow to do just that. But even proponents doubt that the legislature will be willing to give up the money in a year of record deficits.

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.

As recently named "transformational" principals at great traditional and charter schools, we call for public forums hosted by a credible, independent organization to discuss the equitable funding of schools in Baltimore. We believe charter school students receive more funding than traditional school students and that public forums will shed light on what is fair and help move the conversation from equity to adequacy of funding for all students. There is widespread belief among teachers and principals that traditional public schools are subsidizing charters.

In "Holding back the city's charter schools" (May 7) Ricarda Easton and Will McKenna present their case for the importance of charter schools to education in Baltimore City. We are three educators with extensive experience in Baltimore, including in charter schools, and we argue that while they may be right, it is not in the way they seem to think. At the center of Ms. Easton and Mr. McKenna's argument are two linked claims: that charters have brought a fresh approach to education in the city and that they are being held back from doing even more good by the combination of flat funding, centralized control and a lack of willingness on the part of city schools' central office to adequately distinguish between charters and traditional public schools.

Education reform measures from the Common Core standards to teacher evaluations have come under increasing criticism this year as the plans have started rolling out in classrooms. Just how difficult the reforms have been was clear at  Thursday night's debate on education policy at Towson University, where education leaders bluntly acknowledged some of the implementation issues, but also said they stand behind the Common Core standards. The panel discussion was held by the Maryland Public Policy Institute and included education experts representing both sides of the political spectrum.

Ricarda Easton and Will McKenna have done an excellent job of summarizing the many issues that need to be addressed by the Baltimore's new CEO of schools regarding charter schools ( "Holding back the city's charter schools," May 7). Incoming Superintendent Gregory Thornton would be well advised also to examine a new report from the University of Arkansas that compares funding of charter schools to traditional schools (" which discusses the disparity between funding in almost every state.

Ten years ago, Baltimore students were able for the first time to enroll in public charter schools, which brought a fresh approach to education in the city. Publicly funded and part of the Baltimore City Public Schools, charter schools are run by independent operators who develop an academic approach and governance model to engage families in public education in new ways. These schools are held accountable for driving student achievement and for being well managed. Today, Baltimore is fortunate to have 31 charters across the city, many of which are integral parts of the education landscape.

In the Region Farmers & Mechanics applies to become state-chartered bank Farmers & Mechanics National Bank said yesterday that it has applied to Maryland regulators to become a state-chartered bank. F&M, now federally chartered, said it wants to make the switch because recent legislation eliminated differences in activities permitted for the two types of institutions. The new laws mean the expense associated with a national charter "is no longer warranted," the bank said. Farmers & Mechanics is the lead bank of F&M Bancorp, a $1.7 billion bank holding company based in Frederick.

WASHINGTON -- The House easily passed legislation yesterday blocking retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Home Depot Inc. from establishing their own banks. Republican Rep. Paul E. Gillmor said he sponsored the bipartisan bill to close "the last loophole" allowing commercial companies to own a type of bank known as an industrial loan company, or ILC. Chartering such banks permits companies "to make an end-run around the bank laws" that otherwise would impose tight regulations, the Ohio congressman said on the House floor.

The Baltimore Education Coalition, the ACLU, Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development, and the city's school system recently brought to light the injustice of students being taught in school system buildings that are clearly inadequate. Some facilities had no heat in the winter and no air conditioning in the summer.
