Bright and motivated college-bound immigrants will do Maryland proud ("A flawed compromise," March 8). These young people came here as children, are fully assimilated into American culture and want to be contributing members. We are lucky to have them working for our future. The Central Americans come from countries torn apart by wars paid for by the United States. Paltry aid for rebuilding is nothing in comparison to what we spent to damage Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala. These countries are still recovering from the murder and destruction we rained on them.

In his op-ed ( "Cooling out poor, minority kids in community college," May 9), Fred Millar has insulted the success by every student of any color who has attended and graduated from a community college. Despite being an "educational sociologist," Mr. Millar also perpetuates the myth that grades should not matter for eligibility to either 2- or 4-year colleges. While discussing the quality of remedial courses for those in both institutions, Mr. Millar never mentions why remedial courses are necessary in the first place.

In their first televised debate, Gov. Martin O'Malley vehemently accused former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. of having raised tuition rates at state universities by 40 percent. If Mr. O'Malley is so adamantly against this hike in tuition, then why hasn't his administration lowered the rates by 40 percent during the last four years? Just curious.

The op-ed piece by Janet Gilbert about a college her son visited 500 miles away drew my attention ("The college we visited was might nice … and mighty white," June 16). Her position of not being a racist by rejecting a school for being too white makes her a racist by definition. If she truly wants her son to be in a more diverse community, why is she living in Woodstock and working in Baltimore? I am sure many city high schools are less white than the Woodstock school. I know Douglass, Walbrook, or perhaps Dunbar high schools would give her son a great education with diversity.

Your editorial "A flawed compromise" (March 8) argued that children of illegal immigrants should be allowed to pay the reduced in-state tuition at Maryland public colleges and universities. However, since these people should be deported to their native countries, why should the citizens of Maryland subsidize their educations? Do we wish to spend our money to enhance the value of people that we should be deporting, so that they can do better when they return to their native countries?

College freshmen are completing their first month on campus. According to the website  The Other Freshman 15 , "The first 15 weeks of college can be the riskiest for sexual assault. ... One out of five students experience rape or sexual assault while they are in college, and in the great majority of cases (75-80 percent), the victim knows the attacker. " The  Washington Post  recently carried a front-page story about campus sexual assaults. As the father of former college students, two of whom are daughters, I was stunned by the presumptions in the story.

The University of Baltimore said Wednesday it will continue admitting underclassmen, rejecting a recent proposal to scrap the freshman and sophomore classes altogether and opting instead to strengthen its first-year program. Last month, the university's new president, Kurt L. Schmoke, said the school was considering discontinuing the freshman and sophomore classes and again becoming an upper-division college that enrolled only juniors and seniors. Since the first freshmen were admitted in 2007, the school's enrollment growth has waned.

Following the urban unrest in the 1960s, there was a move toward requiring college degrees for police officers. That movement never gained serious momentum across the nation. Today only a few of the police departments across the country require applicants to possess a college degree, and concerns are still being raised as to whether today's police officers are best prepared to deal with the myriad of situations presented in modern policing. Indeed there are serious questions as to whether a modern democracy can survive without better prepared law enforcement officials able to handle the stresses of the job without overreacting.
