The fact that Anne Arundel County schools have the highest expulsion rate in the Baltimore area is less a concern than what the schools are doing with the kids they expel.The Evening Sun recently reported that the county expels more students than even much-larger Baltimore City. That is not the kind of information the school public relations department is likely to advertise, but it does not necessarily reflect badly on the system.It may be taken as a sign that educators are serious about keeping the schools safe.

A South River High School senior has been barred from having a firearm for a year, but avoided a criminal conviction Tuesday for having an unloaded shotgun in his car on the school parking lot in February, his lawyer said. Patrick Bryan Mitchell, 18, whose automatic expulsion from the school in Edgewater was protested by students and parents, made no statements before Anne Arundel County District Judge Thomas J. Pryal, who imposed a year's unsupervised probation during which the teenager cannot have a firearm.

A Navy panel recommended yesterday that 29 senior midshipmen be expelled for their part in the largest cheating scandal in the 149-year history of the U.S. Naval Academy.Forty-two others were recommended for punishments short of expulsion, while another 35 were exonerated of violating the academy's strict honor concept, which states: "Midshipmen are persons of integrity: They do not lie, cheat or steal."In a related move, the Pentagon will recommend today that the White House appoint Adm. Charles R. Larson, commander in chief of U.S. Pacific Forces and a former academy superintendent, as the next superintendent, replacing Rear Adm. Thomas C. Lynch, who is to complete his tour of duty this summer, a Defense Department source said.

Last Friday morning, President Barack Obama visited Annapolis to address roughly 1,000 Naval Academy midshipmen. Then he took his seat with other VIPs and the thousands in attendance and watched as the midshipmen, decked out in their pristine dress whites, graduated and took their oaths as commissioned officers. Every year, the event is magnificent. With a ceremony of such grandeur, it should come as no surprise that, in their previous four years, the midshipmen were held to the highest standards of performance and conduct.

Despite a barrage of public comments, many negative, Maryland State Board of Education members said Tuesday that they will push forward with plans to reduce the use of long-term suspensions and expulsions in student discipline. "Everybody gets that kids need to be in school," said board President James H. DeGraffenreidt Jr. "The question is how do we do that?" The board received more than 200 written comments after asking for public input when it released a report in late February, detailing proposed changes that would reduce suspensions for nonviolent offenses.

Maryland's school board will consider passing a regulation that would limit the time a school district can keep a student out of school waiting for a decision on the appeal of a suspension or expulsion. After a Fairfax County, Va., student committed suicide following a long suspension from school, the Maryland board asked state administrators to survey school systems for their policies. "It is clear what happened in Fairfax could happen in any district in Maryland," board member Kate Walsh said Tuesday after seeing the survey results.

—The Roma have been persecuted across Europe for centuries. Now Roma (often called Gypsies, a term they dislike) face a form of discrimination unseen in Europe since World War II: group evictions and expulsions from several European democracies of men, women and children on the grounds that they pose a threat to public order. This month, France began to carry out plans to expel all non-French Roma, implicating them as a group in criminal activity, without any legal process to determine whether individuals have committed any crime or pose a threat.

The Maryland state school board is beginning a major review of statewide policies on long-term suspensions and expulsions after concerns over a case involving a student who was suspended for nearly an entire school year without being given any access to public education. In reviewing the Dorchester County case earlier this year, the state board decided it was deeply concerned by the failure to provide some education to a student during the suspension. The review comes after the Baltimore school board adopted a hard-line policy giving its CEO the right to permanently expel a student.

Baltimore's school board voted 5-2 Tuesday night to adopt a policy that allows students to be permanently expelled for setting fires or other violent acts that threaten the safety of staff and students. The vote came after months of public comment and haggling over the details of the policy. In the end, the board and schools CEO Andr?s Alonso compromised. Alonso retained his authority to permanently expel students, but under more narrow circumstances and with a greater weight given to the student's home life and experiences, and right to due process.
