A sickout by Baltimore County teachers to protest mandatory furlough days left school administrators scrambling today to cover classes and ensure that instruction at the system's 148 schools continued normally.Teachers were upset at the fact that the furloughs were scheduled during days that the teachers would normally be working at school without the students, and they will now have to work those days without pay.The majority of absences appeared to be in high schools, said spokesman Richard E. Bavaria.

Everyone who's ever attended Notre Dame Preparatory School -- or is close to anyone who did -- will nod knowingly at the words "gym meet." Years later, participants remember who won the competition, their songs, where they stood in the march line. But will they be able to explain a tradition that provokes gales of laughter and rivers of tears and even decades afterward evokes poignant memories? Not as easily. A fierce competition among the four high school classes at the Catholic girls' school in Towson, the gym meet is a rite of passage wrapped in a bit of magic.

The second annual convention of the Sabbath-school association convened Sept. 8, 1868, in Westminster. Before the association formed, Protestant clergy met individually to discuss the usefulness of religious education, Sunday school classes and ways to extend their influence throughout the county. The group, comprising delegates from all Protestant denominations in Carroll County, met formally for the first time in 1867 and created the Sabbath-school association. -- History of Western Maryland, Volume 2 by J.

If you count the things that are wrong with the Baltimore Teachers Union's petition drive to limit class size in Baltimore's public schools, you'll quickly run out of fingers. The idea is wrong procedurally, philosophically and practically. Not to mention that it's illegal.The union, which represents city teachers in collective bargaining, wants voters to approve a city charter amendment that would limit pre-school classes to 22, elementary classes to 25, middle school classes to 28 and high school classes to 33. Such a move, if a court ever approved it, would commit the city to hiring nearly 1,000 teachers and cost some $30 million.

Returning to school a little shaken, some students walked in clusters behind their parents, while others went arm-in-arm. A few even took their parents' hands, as though they needed the same reassurance they had received in elementary school. At the front flagpole, the band kids, the football players and the chorus members melded together to pray for both the "sweet and kind" victim and the alleged assailant in the shooting at Perry Hall High School. Students came back Tuesday searching for ways to continue to heal a community they say has been drawn closer by the shooting inside their school.
