Eight months after they began lobbying to keep their children in Reisterstown for middle school, about 50 parents and children from Cedarmere Elementary took their protest to the county seat yesterday -- picketing, marching and chanting "We want Ruppersberger!" in front of the county office building, and the television cameras.Accompanied by children lugging signs, the parents demanded that the county add grades six, seven and eight to their elementary school so their children will not be sent to Randallstown's Deer Park Middle.

Two Baltimore County boys traded a Bersa .380-caliber gun for an Xbox 360 in a swap that ended when officers found a handful of bullets in jeans left in a school locker room, police said Friday. The exchange between the 12-year-old students at Deer Park Middle Magnet is the third gun-related incident in county schools since the academic year started in late August, including a shooting at Perry Hall High School that left one student seriously injured. The recent gun violence — and the extent to which Baltimore County students have had access to weapons — has unnerved many in the school community.

Regarding the Solo Cup factory zoning ("No 'courtesy' for Wegmans," May 27), why is no one talking about using the facility for a new middle school in the northwestern part of the county? Franklin Middle School has 1,292 students, Deer Park Middle has 1,235 students and Pikesville Middle has 1,017. These enrollment figures are higher than the other county middle schools and having over 1,200 students in a middle school is ludicrous. The best use of this property would be a new middle school so that student enrollment at the aforementioned middle schools could be reduced to reasonable levels.

Cedarmere Elementary School parents never recovered from the Baltimore County school board's decision seven years ago to redistrict their children out of their community, from crowded Franklin Middle to Deer Park Middle in Randallstown.Black community leaders never forgot, either -- especially the vehemence with which white parents opposed the move to a school in a mostly black neighborhood.Now, the controversy is resurfacing as residents in the Cedarmere area, with the help of local politicians, push to move their children back to Reisterstown -- saying that the redistricting has damaged community cohesiveness and reduced housing values.

The Baltimore County school board is looking at three million-dollar magnets.Proposals from Parkville and Deer Park Middle Schools and Patapsco High for new magnet programs all carried budgets of more than $1 million over three years when officials presented them at Tuesday's board meeting. The board also heard a magnet proposal for a finance program at Overlea High -- for less than $80,000.Superintendent Stuart Berger said that while the special programs could become a reality, the size of their budgets could be wishful thinking.

These teachers have nicknames like "bag lady" and "teacher on wheels." Their classrooms sometimes crash into students, or each other, in the hallways.In the Baltimore area and around the nation, they are officially called "floaters," teachers who roam from room to room when schools are too crowded for them to have their own.Instead, their home base is a cart, stacked with books, calculators, pencil sharpeners, video cameras, posters, lost-and-found items, hall passes, sometimes even test tubes and microscopes -- as much as they can push.
