The first statewide teacher survey shows that Maryland has a remarkably satisfied teaching corps, three-quarters of whom feel positive about their work, the resources they are given and their school's efforts to help every student. Most teachers don't feel they have enough say in the decisions that are made in their schools, or on the district level, however, and they say their school districts should increase the mentoring and support of new teachers. Only a third of new teachers said they had a mentor, a key point as the Maryland General Assembly considers legislation that would extend the length of time it takes a teacher to get tenure and would require more mentoring.

UNDERAGE drinking is a criminal shame. It's dangerous for everyone, not just the kid who takes a drink. That message must be understood by minors, by law enforcement officers, by parents and especially by the public schools. So the students of Liberty High School who got caught drinking at house parties on New Year's Eve should endure the full consequences of their decision to attend -- and to stay -- at parties where kids were drinking. About 20 teen-agers have been implicated, including students active in sports and extracurricular activities at the Eldersburg school.
