As long-time advocates for public education in Baltimore County, we felt compelled to respond to letter writer Harry J. Cook's view of the Advanced Placement exams (" A different perspective on AP courses Sept. 6). While we're grateful that magnet schools such as Eastern Technical High School offer quality programs, it's unrealistic to compare this selective, quasi-private school with most county comprehensive high schools. Despite its name, Eastern Tech is far from the vocational-technical school of old. Its pre-engineering, pre-law and technology programs are designed for highly motivated, capable students and require a rigorous application and assessment process.

Students at a Baltimore County high school drew a racially offensive picture on a classroom board last week and then sent it out on Twitter, prompting the principal to call police and suspend several students. The picture, drawn during class at Eastern Technical High School, shows three nooses hanging from the rafters of a building, according to Baltimore County police spokesman Cathy Batton. Beside the ropes are a burning cross with three stick figures in pointed hats, suggesting the Ku Klux Klan.

Along the asphalt roads of the Villages of Tall Trees apartment complex, young Anthony Lawston ran nightly wind sprints for football training -- past the drug dealers, prostitutes and crackles of gunfire.For Anthony, the seediness of that Essex neighborhood was all too familiar. Born to a mother who was addicted to crack cocaine -- and was later imprisoned for drug dealing -- his football skills had helped him push forward, toward a goal of playing in the National Football League. So even on those crime-ridden streets, he kept running, despite the gunfire.
