Your recent report about the "sails" sculpture I designed for Patterson High School suggests to me that the conservator hired by the school system to preserve it does not understand the intent behind the artwork ( "City evaluates art in schools as part of 10-year renovation plan," June 19). The well-known architect of the building, Van Fossen Schwab, asked me to create a sculpture that could protect a large, glass second-floor window from vandals as well as allow light to enter the interior.

Patterson High School became the latest political battleground in the effort to rebuild Baltimore's decrepit school infrastructure this week, with students throwing their support behind a proposed bottle tax that could help raise about $300 million for facility upgrades. The Baltimore Education Coalition led City Council Vice President Edward Reisinger and education advocates from around the city on a tour of Patterson on Thursday, where broken boilers and sweltering, cramped and ill-equipped classrooms offered a glimpse into the district's $2.8 billion list of repairs.

Art conservator Lori Trusheim leaned out of a second-story window and squinted through her camera at a 72-square-foot copper sculpture that has become a local landmark. The elements have taken a toll over the past three decades, and she wants it preserved. But the piece, which depicts eight billowing, blue-green clipper ship sails, isn't in a public square or at a museum. It's mounted to the side of Patterson High School. It was commissioned by the city to represent Patterson's nickname, the Clippers, and students and faculty say it has become a defining part of the school.

Countless famous footsteps have crossed the White House's entrance hall, but on Tuesday, some of the country's top science and technology dignitaries had to dodge a hovercraft made of foam and a paper bowl whizzing across the shiny pink-and-white marble. It was built by a group of five students at Patterson High School, selected among 30 research ventures for the fourth annual White House science fair. They won a place at the event by merit of a competition they won last fall, putting them in a room with President Barack Obama and with leaders of NASA, the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health, who visited with the students and asked questions.

As a senior at Patterson High School, I congratulate interim city schools CEO Tisha Edwards for the good work she is doing for the Baltimore City schools. She may have heard of Patterson because we have had many problems. Students here believe we can do better, however, but we need her help. Every day in my third-period class I have to wear two jackets because it is too cold in the room. It is 52 degrees in the morning and it slowly rises to 62 after classes begin. The cold temperatures decrease student attendance.

Teachers and administrators do not like suspending students. It is always a balancing act trying to weigh the interests of the larger student body vs. that of the individual student ( "The folly of pre-K suspensions," Nov. 12). That said, criticism of suspensions with no mention of funding "in-school" interventions represents the height of hypocrisy. Most of the children involved in violent behaviors need love and support, which will rarely be found in a suspension. Schools need to create internal programs and alternative curricula for many, many of these children, but there is no money to do so. Thus, schools are left with one tool to deal with highly-disruptive, often violent students: suspension.
