John Cooper will be Kenwood's new wrestling coach, according to the school. Cooper is a resident of Nottingham and a Baltimore County police officer. But what makes him the school's new choice as the Bluebirds' coach is that the former Archbishop Curley wrestler can bring a lot of experience to the team. Cooper was a two-time MSA wrestling champion and a National Prep champ when he wrestled for the Friars. "Having a person with Coach Cooper's passion for the sport of wrestling bodes well for Kenwood," athletic director Derek Maki said.

In ordering the teachers at troubled Kenwood High School to reapply for their jobs, Baltimore County education officials obviously are looking over their shoulders at a possible state takeover of the east county school.Kenwood bears a number of unhappy distinctions that, all told, make it the jurisdiction's lowest-performing school by Maryland Department of Education standards. Attendance falls well short of even the satisfactory level. Last year's ninth-graders did poorly on tests of basic academic functions, while 11th-graders fared acceptably only in reading and writing.

Two weeks after the announcement that the Norplant contraceptive would be made available to teen-age girls in Baltimore City, a group of Baltimore County educators, business leaders and government officials unveiled plans to open a day care center for Kenwood High School students with children. The center will open next month at the Essex school and eventually serve as many as 12 children up to 2 1/2 years old.Both the city and county stories should serve to remind us that it's not enough any more to register shock and sadness at "babies having babies," especially in the Baltimore area, a nationally recognized hotbed of teen pregnancy.

In a bold attempt to revamp troubled Kenwood High, officials have told teachers that they will have to reapply for their jobs if they want to stay at the eastern Baltimore County school next year.Even then, teachers will have to fit the principal's "profile" and be chosen to keep their positions. Those who want to leave or who are not retained will be placed in other schools.Officials say the nearly unprecedented action is an attempt to turn around a problem school and perhaps forestall state intervention.
