An Aberdeen-based African-American advocacy organization alleges that black students in the Harford County public school system are discriminated against in the way they are punished for school offenses. "We see a trend, over the past two years, that black and white students are not treated the same," said Tandra Ridgley, a co-founder of GrassRoots Steering Foundation Inc. "Black students are suspended more often, for longer periods and for more offenses than their white counterparts." The organization said it will file tomorrow complaints alleging discrimination with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Johns Hopkins University's announcement this week that it will increase its tuition for next year by 7.2 percent - the largest percentage increase since 1987 - will assure the school its place among some of the nation's most expensive. With its new tuition of $33,900, Hopkins is pricey, but likely not pricey enough to earn a spot among the 10 most expensive colleges and universities in a listing by The Chronicle of Higher Education this fall. Among those on the list were George Washington University at $36,400, and Sarah Lawrence, Kenyon and Vassar, whose tuitions of more than $33,000 could also go higher next year.

Once a consumer crusader as a local television reporter, John Stossel has made a name for himself in recent years at ABC News as a contrarian challenging conventional wisdom. He finds society to be populated by nettlesome critics of corporate America, especially those ideologues he says are masquerading as environmental or health advocates. In ABC's "Tampering With Nature," a one-hour special to be aired Friday, Stossel says some of those ideologues are busy brainwashing schoolchildren to believe that the world is a very scary place.
