The journey to a high school diploma for most Maryland students spans four years, 720 days of classes, and a slate of state tests. But for dozens of Baltimore youths, the journey has involved a two-hour trip up Interstate 95, a three-hour exam and a $500 check. Over the past year and a half, the Baltimore City Department of Social Services paid $40,000 of taxpayer money to send youths in foster care to a private Christian school in Philadelphia where they have obtained a high school diploma in one day. Social Services officials defend the program, despite its unusual method of providing diplomas.

The empty desks in the computer room, left with nothing more than dust and a few old cables, tell the story of the burglary as vividly as any anecdote. Thieves who broke into a private Christian school in Northeast Baltimore over the weekend seemed to know exactly where the most valuable items were, school officials said Wednesday, prompting the theory that the perpetrators are former students. The burglars made off with 17 new desktop computers that had been set up just two weeks ago, as well as sound and music equipment from behind a stage.

The staff meeting had just ended at the radio station as the chief executive officer struggled with a computer program to pay a bill. Frustrated, 11-year-old Rebecca Forrester lost it when a colleague allowed a friend to give a shout-out on the air. "You have to pay for that!" she yelled to her disc jockey. Rebecca slapped her hand to her head and turned back to her computer screen. It's tough being boss, even of a pretend Christian rock radio station. Last week, Arundel Bay Christian Academy in Lothian was the first school to get a daylong dip into the business world at Junior Achievement's new simulated community, called BizTown.
