"I think you need somebody to be hired to intimidate the children."Meade is not alone in dealing with violent students, but a fight in September 1994 in which veteran librarian Donald Gobbi was seriously injured while trying to intervene highlighted problems at the school.

I read with interest the two articles in The Sun on Nov. 5 entitled, "Some advocating guards at Meade Senior High" and "Violent students go unpunished, teachers say."My son attends Meade Senior High. So far this school year he has been physically assaulted twice (by students he did not know), has had two sets of gym clothes stolen ($15 initial loss) and has had a $5 lock smashed off his gym locker by the thieves who robbed him. At this rate, we anticipate the school year will cost us about $200 in stolen tangibles, and about two weeks of lost leave for my husband and myself.

School redistricting plans always turn ugly. A proposal to move Severn Elementary pupils to the Meade Senior High feeder system is no exception.Severn Elementary parents are bitterly opposed, and, in many ways, their feelings are justified. Switching schools can be a disruptive, upsetting experience for children, and inequities between schools are a fact. These are sensible reasons for fighting redistricting.Unfortunately, redistricting usually devolves into emotional turmoil until all rational arguments are lost in irrational panic.
