County Executive James T. Smith Jr. has asked a regional planning group to look at crowded Perry Hall High School, which parents have complained is not safe. In one of his first actions involving the school system, Smith has asked the Baltimore Metropolitan Council to study enrollment trends at Perry Hall High and explore possible solutions to the crowding. The school is 170 students over capacity. Smith sent a letter to Baltimore County Schools Superintendent Joe A. Hairston last week saying he took the step because Perry Hall High parents have voiced their "mistrust and frustration" with the school system's response to their concerns.

The school system is planning to use savings from construction projects to pay for construction of a hallway at Perry Hall High School, where crowded corridors have been a persistent problem. "It will help the traffic flow," said Superintendent Joe A. Hairston, who found the money for the addition after receiving complaints from parents and county politicians. County Executive James T. Smith Jr. mentioned the project in his budget message Wednesday. The County Council must approve the transfer of the $400,000 in savings, but council members say that shouldn't be a problem.

SO THIS week's lesson in civics, history and brazen stupidity comes to us from Baltimore County's Perry Hall High School, scene of the now infamous 2004 yearbook incident. It started when some self-styled witty fellow thought it would be a hoot to type the dreaded N-word beside the name of a biracial schoolmate in the yearbook. The biracial student and the witty fellow, according to news reports, are friends. Word of advice to the biracial student: Choose friends who have some sense. It's a good thing Mr. Funny Man decided to stop when he did. There's no telling what he may have typed beside the names of Perry Hall High's Asian-American or Jewish or Italian-American or fill-in-any-ethnic-religious-racial-group-here students.

After an emotional day of testimony, Robert W. Gladden Jr., the 15-year-old charged in the Perry Hall High School cafeteria shooting, was sentenced Monday to 35 years in prison. Baltimore County Circuit Judge Robert E. Cahill Jr. went beyond state sentencing guidelines to put Gladden away until he is at least 50 years old, citing continued fear in Perry Hall along with a national concern for school safety that has grown stronger since the Newtown, Conn. school massacre. Kathleen Watkins, a school administrator, told the court that the school is still working to get past the shooting that injured Daniel Borowy, a 17-year-old special needs student, on the first day of school.

Gladden Jr. pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted murder in a shooting attack on a schoolmate last August, bringing an abrupt end to his trial in Baltimore County Circuit Court. Gladden, 15, had told investigators that he wanted to kill himself when he fired his father's shotgun in a crowded lunchroom on the first day of school. Now he could be imprisoned until he is 55. Returning to court two weeks after failing to convince a judge that he should be tried as a juvenile, Gladden formally admitted Tuesday to shooting 17-year-old Daniel Borowy, a special-needs student at the public school.
