Donald McColl was ready to start his PowerPoint presentation on the questionable origin of some early Christian artworks, but the equipment was acting up. A student asked, "Does anyone have a paper clip?" It was a joke. No one has a paper clip in prison. This summer, a caravan of scholars and students has been traveling 65 miles from the rustic Chestertown campus of Washington College to the barbed-wire fortress of Jessup Correctional Institution to teach ethics to prisoners.

A possible contender to be Baltimore's next schools chief has faced ethical questions during his tenure as the No. 2 school official in Philadelphia. Gregory Thornton was one of two top Philadelphia school officials who went on a trip to South Africa in the summer of 2004. The trip was partly paid for by an education software company, Plato Learning. Later that year, Thornton and the other administrator who went on the trip signed off on a no-bid, $926,000 contract for Plato, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Plato once said wise people speak when they have something to say and fools talk when they have to say something. But, as dozens of different events loom on our social calendars, we know there are times when we have to say something, significant or not. Let's face it. Plato and the rest of his Greek pals, whose conversations are legendary, never had to master small talk. So, how can the socially apprehensive master the art of small talk, a skill some find as difficult as interpreting one of Plato's weighty philosophical dialogues?

Trying to bring "closure" to the issues surrounding Prince George's County schools chief Andre J. Hornsby's relations with education vendors, the chairwoman of the county school board sent elected officials a statement yesterday defending the system against allegations of impropriety. In what she called a "statement of facts," board Chairwoman Beatrice P. Tignor offered a point-by-point response to some of the questions raised about Hornsby, defending the board's decision to hire him and asserting the legitimacy of the county's spending on education software.
