An unlikely scene unfolds daily at City Neighbors High School in Baltimore: Students lounge in cheetah-print beanbag chairs reading books, stretch across stained-wood hutch-style desks as they work on assignments and wash dishes at a kitchen sink. The public charter school, which opened this year with an inaugural ninth-grade class of 90 students, has created a "home away from home" as part of its innovative learning environment. "The idea behind this is, 'How do we make it so that every kid who walks in those doors is known, loved and supported academically,' " said Bobbi Macdonald, the school's founder and self-described "relentless shopper" as she gave a tour of the building she feverishly decorated before doors opened to students this year.

This is about one woman's difficult choice, but it's also about public commitment to kids, especially the poorer ones who live in Baltimore.The loss this month of a potentially terrific city teacher -- a woman we'll call Rose for the purposes of this column -- was guaranteed by years of political myopia, bureaucratic inertia and too many people tolerating disparities in the quality of education throughout the state.
