City has expertise to solve its problems As a professional who has had significant contact with the Crossroads School, I can certainly understand why educators from four states flocked to Fells Point last week to learn how to achieve the greatest academic success with middle school students from impoverished urban backgrounds ("Models of middle school success," May 1). While it may appear to some to be counterintuitive that anyone would come to Baltimore to learn about educating the urban poor, the success of the Crossroads School, KIPP Ujima Village Academy and New Song Academy highlight a very important point: Many of the solutions to Baltimore's intractable youth problems can be found in our own backyard.

It starts with a prompt from the ballroom dancing instructor, and the kids, arm in arm and elbows up, miraculously transform into elegant fox-trotters. The middle school students at Crossroads School are part of a program based on Mad Hot Ballroom, a documentary about dancing teams at New York City schools. The school in Fells Point takes kids from impoverished neighborhoods in East Baltimore and helps turn their academic performances around.

About 20 groups have submitted proposals to launch new privately run, publicly funded schools in Baltimore - a sign that school reform is alive and well at the grass-roots level. One proposal is for a small high school in Reservoir Hill. Another is for a "hybrid" school and community center. A third is for a middle school that would use a curriculum developed by Outward Bound. The "New Schools" initiative - the equivalent of charter schools - was begun three years ago as a way of raising academic standards in the city's underperforming schools.

Nearly lost in Baltimore's bountiful maritime history are the largely uncharted contributions of countless African-American craftsmen and laborers who hauled cargo, built and repaired ships and helped forge a seafaring capital out of a young port city. That will change next year, when an educational nonprofit group finishes restoring a rickety warehouse in Fells Point. Due to open in the fall of next year, the waterfront Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park is jointly named for the Maryland-born abolitionist and the founder of the first black-owned shipyard in the nation.
