U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who says he has seen a broad spectrum of the nation's schools, from successful to struggling, left Wilde Lake High School this week singing not only its praises but those of the Howard County school system. During a roundtable discussion at the school, Duncan posed questions to Wilde Lake students about whether the system known for its diversity works for all of its students. Columbia's Wilde Lake, where school officials say more than 90 percent of students pass high school assessments before the 12th grade, has one of the county's most diverse student populations, with no ethnic group totaling more than 41 percent of its enrollment.

Two Wilde Lake High School juniors - Evan Sokolosky and Daniel Lesko - are part of the movement to get a skateboard park built at Centennial Park.

Phil Chenier faces the same concerns any other high school basketball coach has at this time of the season. His Wilde Lake High varsity squad was 9-7 as of late last week and trying to get everything together for a late-season roll heading into post-season play. Chenier, 31, is a former standout player at Wilde Lake and Howard University who knows the game and loves teaching it. He also is fortunate in that when a basketball question occurs, one trusted source he can turn to is a three-time National Basketball Association all-star who, as a television announcer, is still involved in the pro league.

Howard County Superintendent Michael E. Hickey is a lucky man. He's about to get a 3 percent pay raise that will boost his annual salary to $115,750, almost even with the Baltimore County superintendent's salary and just shy of what Baltimore City's school chief earns. The latter two both command school systems with substantially larger student populations than Howard's, and with more intense social problems.But that should in no way imply that Dr. Hickey's job can be underestimated. As the head of one of the state's best school systems, Dr. Hickey has faced considerable challenges in his 12 years as superintendent, not the least of which is to maintain the level of excellence that Howard County has come to expect.
