Many postsecondary students do not follow a traditional path from college entry to degree at a single institution ( "More students transferring into Maryland universities," Sept. 8). Approximately half of all students attend more than one institution, reflecting a much more complex enrollment pattern. The linear view of college that focuses on the initial institution where a student starts their postsecondary experience fails to assess the realities of how mobile students have become over the last decade.

The article by Doug Donovan related to the legislative audit of the Maryland Department of Human Resources ( "Md. agency failed to monitor placement of foster children, audit says," Aug. 20) is missing some important information. It fails to point out the enormous strides made by DHR in recognizing that when children need out-of-home care, relatives are often the best option and that "place matters. " Kinship caregivers are most likely to be known by the children, live locally and minimize the disruption and trauma when they are removed from a parent or parents they love.

YAWNS almost drowned out the sound of pounding surf last week at the Maryland Association of Counties' annual summer conference in Ocean City. With most of the state's political community gathered in one place for four days in August, the conference is typically a hotbed of gossip, parties, and seeing and being seen. But with the next statewide elections three years away (save for Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski's re-election bid) and moods darkened by the financial troubles of state and local governments, this year's event lacked the luster of years past.

Gov. Martin O'Malley worked the room at one of Maryland's biggest political events of the year Thursday, grinning for photos, slapping the backs of fellow politicians and causing bottlenecks wherever he stopped. Most years, the governor sticks around Ocean City until Saturday to deliver a speech to the annual Maryland Association of Counties convention. But in O'Malley's final year in office, he will instead spend the next two days working on his political future. "I hear you're supposed to be in New Hampshire this weekend," Wendy Frosh, sister of Democratic attorney general candidate Brian Frosh, told O'Malley.

Under a new federal accountability system, Maryland is no longer in compliance with the rules governing special-education students because the state's schools exempt a high percentage of students from national testing. The announcement this week by federal education officials means Maryland will have to pressure local school systems to include more students in the National Assessment of Educational Testing, a national test in math and reading that is given every two years. Thirty other states and the District of Columbia were also found out of compliance for a variety of reasons.
