LONG after the graduation ceremony was done, and the big crowd at the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood Field had drifted out into the humid evening, Francine Tucker beheld her brand-new master's degree and listened to a man ask a simple question. "Did you ever think you'd see such a day?" "No," said Tucker. "I didn't even think I would be this old." She is 46 now, but she has survived too many lifetimes in this city's dreariest shadows. The master's degree from Hopkins, in special education, comes three decades after Tucker dropped out of the seventh grade at age 13 and ran away from home because she could no longer bear to live with an abusive, schizophrenic mother.

Only seven counties in the United States can boast a larger percentage, according to Census 2000 data released this week. People with advanced degrees - graduate, doctorate, professional - account for nearly a quarter of Howard's adult population, about the same as the nationwide percentage of people with undergraduate and advanced degrees combined.
