Maryland is poised to join a growing number of states that are requiring students to stay in school until their 18th birthday, a shift that President Barack Obama urged during his State of the Union address in January. A measure to raise the compulsory attendance age — state students now must attend until they turn 16 — has cleared both chambers in the Maryland General Assembly. It needs final approval by the Senate, which is expected as early as today. Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he will sign the legislation, which would fully take effect in 2017.

Private operators would take over six city recreation centers — in some cases, charging annual fees to those who use them or offering programs for ex-offenders and the mentally ill as well as children — under a deal that had been slated to go before Baltimore's spending board Wednesday. Some City Council members expressed concerns about the proposals, especially those in which the operator of two centers would charge annual fees. Late Monday, following repeated inquiries from a reporter for The Baltimore Sun, a spokesman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said the Board of Estimates would defer a decision on the contracts.

Alonso's excitement grew with each new piece of good news, and yet he was anxious. "It can turn on a dime," he would say. And then, there was a murder. Markel Williams, 15, was stabbed to death by a fellow student outside William H. Lemmel Middle School.
