The Maryland Democratic Party is asking state prosecutors to investigate what it says are "serious campaign finance violations" by a group that opposes the state's Dream Act. The director of the group called the claims "bogus. " Brad Botwin, who founded Help Save Maryland six years ago, described the challenge as "another violation of my First Amendment rights. " The Dream Act, if approved by voters next month, would extend in-state tuition breaks at the state's public colleges and universities to some illegal immigrants who have graduated from high school in Maryland, whose families have filed state income taxes, and who meet other requirements.

The Baltimore Sun It hasn't received much attention, but there's a provision in the Maryland Dream Act, up for your approval or rejection on the November ballot, that extends a benefit to veterans. Voters ought to take note of it, because if we vote down the college tuition break for young adults who came here as undocumented immigrants, we'll be saying nay to a generous provision for men and women who served in our military, too. Says right there, in the last phrase of Question 4 on the statewide ballot: The Dream Act "extends the time in which honorably discharged veterans may qualify for in-state tuition rates.

Providing illegal immigrants more access to higher education in Maryland could generate an extra $5 million in revenue for the state per graduating college class, according to a new cost-benefit study by University of Maryland, Baltimore County researchers. The conclusion is at odds with a nonpartisan state analysis, which found that the Dream Act would cost Maryland about $3.5 million a year when fully implemented. "The state did not consider the benefits," said Marvin Mandell, a professor of public policy at UMBC who co-authored the study.

Yes, it is time our candidates addressed one of the more pressing concerns facing our nation: Why are we not using the metric system, already? For crying out loud! When I was in grade school, back in the day when lunch boxes actually were metal boxes and the bologna sandwich inside was not a thing to be ashamed of, I learned about the English measurement system.

Nancy Grasmick will retire in June. The accolades pouring in upon her announcement formed an instant hagiography of the woman who for 20 years has led Maryland's public schools. "Dr. Grasmick leaves a luminous legacy and because of her vision, every student in the state will have an opportunity to achieve academic success," wrote Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings, in a statement typical of those about her. The swelling tide of students who graduate from state public high schools without basic reading or math skills should halt her beatification and shatter the myth of the state's unparalleled public schools, however.
