Our view: What Ronald Peiffer, the deputy state superintendent, said he could not conceive of just nine years ago has happened. Forty-six states, D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands all agreed, at least conceptually, that classrooms ought to be teaching toward the same set of high standards. For nearly the past decade, the country has been trying to ensure that every child got a minimum education. Now it appears we are moving to recognize that the minimum is not enough and that we have to raise our expectations if we are going to compete with foreign countries.

South Carroll senior Dan Peiffer has found a way to combine two of his favorite things -- wrestling and electronics -- with mixed reviews.The wrestling he has down pat. He's 9-1 and recently moved to fifth on the school's all-time win list with 66.The electronics? He's still working on that."He likes to do light shows for the introductions before our matches," said South Carroll coach Pete Olson. "Strobe lights, stereo -- the works. But every time, something different seems to go wrong."The last incident came earlier this season against Wilde Lake when he accidentally turned off the main power switch to the gym."

Baltimore County schools will have to pay $115,000 to reimburse the state for rewriting the Maryland Functional Test in math after an east-side school lost four test booklets. State officials had to throw out the version of the statewide test that was given last spring after exam questions went missing from Stemmers Run Middle School in Essex. The breach of security means 77 new questions have to be written for the test, which is typically reused in a later year. The test is given in middle school, but passing is a requirement for high school graduation.
