Board of Education, the landmark school desegregation ruling, has wrought: He attended a middle school full of students of different colors and nationalities, but one where he sometimes felt there were lower expectations for black students. Now at his nearly all African-American high school, Milford Mill Academy in Baltimore County, he sees value in the special character of the school, while acknowledging he may be less prepared to enter a diverse world.

The students are bright and eager. The teachers, caring and hardworking. Even so, the Baltimore County school system's International Baccalaureate program - a tough academic regimen that prepares students for college - has shown uneven, and in some cases disappointing, results. Since 1997, when the first seniors graduated from the program, students at Kenwood High School have earned 44 baccalaureate diplomas. But only one diploma has been awarded at Milford Mill Academy, the other school that offers the program.

Baltimore County police are investigating the posting of nude images of high school students who reportedly attend Milford Mill Academy, though a police spokeswoman said no crime may have been committed because the students are adults. The Instagram account contains pictures of a male student and a female student who are both at least 18, according to spokeswoman Elise Armacost "They're not juveniles," Armacost said. "That makes a big difference when you're talking about a police investigation, because there's not child pornography" if subjects are 18 or older.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz ticked off the wins from the legislative session Monday, but he warned that losses could be substantial next year. County officials and the local delegation went into the session with a nonpartisan, put-the-county-first philosophy, said Kamenetz, a Democrat and first-year county executive. He credited the strategy with his success in achieving his major legislative priorities — more state aid for schools and economic development. The county will receive more than $6 million for capital improvements at Hampton Elementary School and $2 million for economic development along Liberty Road.

First, we had the ongoing concern in Baltimore County Public Schools over the ethics of the Articulated Instruction Module grading system. Then, more recently, we have seen objection to the signage at Ruxton Ridge/West Towson Elementary School as being completely inappropriate to the historical character of the community. As if these two events weren't enough to blacken the eye of the BCPS administration, two more developments have arisen within the last week that make one wonder who is making what decisions, and with what accountability, on issues great and small at Greenwood.

The Baltimore County school system will have to spend as much as $7 million more than expected for an addition at one of its high schools, after allowing a construction firm to pull out of the project over a dispute with the architect, leaving only a concrete foundation and 2-foot-high walls behind. Contractor James W. Ancel asked to leave the $20 million project at Milford Mill Academy last year, claiming the architectural drawings supplied by the county were flawed. The school system decided to pay him $7.6 million for the work he performed and for equipment and materials he brought to the site, and then to seek another contractor, calling it the most expedient and sensible resolution.
