Davis walks the halls of Lyndhurst Elementary School in West Baltimore, the energetic and reform-minded principal sees proof through every classroom window that Maryland School Performance Assessment Program tests have changed education in her building -- for the better.In a kindergarten class, students hold a science fair and write short essays about their experiments. Around the corner, second-graders hone their persuasive writing skills by "sending" letters to friends asking them to stay off drugs and addressing them: "Dear misguided person."

Five years ago, four grandmothers marched into the mayor's office with children in tow. They said their Edgewood neighborhood needed a new community center to replace the shack where kids didn't have enough room to play pingpong and pool at the same time. The grandmothers wouldn't take no for an answer. Yesterday, the determined women joined Mayor Martin O'Malley in opening the 5,700-square-foot Edgewood Lyndhurst Recreation Center in West Baltimore, the first such center built in the city since 1975.

Every five lessons, City Springs first-grade teacher Harriet Brown tests her students. Do the children know that "ph" sounds like "f" and that "strip" is not "stripe?" Can they read the little story about the fox who tried to con a girl out of her ice cream cone?The school's reading program requires this regular measurement.At Lyndhurst Elementary, teacher Betty Pierce thinks she knows how well each of her first-graders can read, but it's just her educated guess, drawn from 30 years in the classroom.

If there is a singular challenge to teaching children to read in Betty Pierce's first-grade class at Lyndhurst Elementary, it can be found in the minds of four little girls who sit at a table near the front of the room and call themselves the Raven Girls.All four have been in the class since the first day of school. They've heard all the same things. They've seen all the same things. They've gotten the same instruction and worked together as one of six teams Pierce created in early November.

BOSTON - At dusk, the drug dealers and prostitutes appear in Codman Square. Drunks hover outside bars and liquor stores. Night after night, young men wearing baggy shorts and T-shirts down to their knees hurl beer bottles at street lights and point guns at each other. It is little wonder that this section of Boston's Dorchester neighborhood is known as the "Hell Zone." "I will not go out at night," said Keisha Jones, 28. "Especially lately, it has been rough. Everybody gets aggravated when it gets hot, and then things escalate."
