"I don't need no caning," said Tyrone.Tyrone is a young man of indeterminate age. He says he's 13. His teacher says he's 15. He looks 16, but at that legal age for rTC dropping out of school, he probably wouldn't be in this high-ceilinged double classroom on the fourth floor of Sojourner-Douglass College in East Baltimore. He'd be on the street.With 21 other young men and a couple of young ladies, Tyrone is enrolled in the Tri-School Alternative Project, an effort by three city public middle schools -- Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Dunbar and Lombard -- to remove their worst behavior cases from home schools and subject them to a month of training and counseling about civilized behavior, combined with a dose of rudimentary academics.

Most education research suggests that students at Hamilton Elementary and Thomas Johnson Middle would be handicapped by their low-income backgrounds. But students at those schools and six others in the city are beating the odds of poverty, according to the state education policy group Maryland Campaign for Achievement Now (MarylandCAN). The schools, which have some of the highest percentages of poor students in the city and state, have consistently outperformed their peers around Maryland.

COLLEGE PARK -- It took Nick Faust a few games of high school basketball to score 20 points for the first time. “I scored 20 when I was a sophomore at John Carroll, against Calvert Hall,” Faust, now a junior at Maryland, recalled Tuesday night.  “My junior year and senior year [at City] I scored 20 all the time.” It took until Faust's 97 th game at Maryland for the 6-foot-6 guard to reach that milestone. He did it in a 71-60 victory for the Terps over Wake Forest on Tuesday at Comcast Center .   Faust knew he had finally broken the 20-point barrier after making a breakaway dunk for points 19 and 20. “I did know when I made that dunk, I knew it was [for my 20 th point]

The Maryland Jesuits are considering opening a high school in Baltimore that would, for the first time, provide low-income students a Catholic college prep education combined with professional experience through a corporate work-study program. The Rev. William J. Watters, S.J., who is chairman of a committee conducting a feasibility study, said students would earn tuition money by working part time in professional offices ranging from law and investment firms to banks and hospitals. The purpose is to expose some of Baltimore's most disadvantaged students to a work environment that could help propel them to college and white-collar careers.

ClarificationA headline and article in March 28 editions of The Sun may have left the misimpression that a Baltimore City school system audit had found that the Stadium School was failing and would have to close unless test scores and instruction improved.In fact, the audit did not suggest that the school was failing and would need to close. The audit stated that when the Stadium School opened in 1994, its planners set five-year performance goals and said they would close the school if such goals were not met. The audit also pointed out that "based on current data trends, it seems highly unlikely" that the goals will be achieved on time.

WHEN I WIN the lottery and have my own school, it will look pretty much like the GreenMount School. It's in the heart of Baltimore at the end of a quiet Remington street, adjacent to Wyman Park, the school's de facto playground. It isn't big. It isn't fancy. Seventy-four kids in grades one through eight is about right. That way, everyone knows everyone else. Kids don't get lost in the shuffle. Perhaps, like GreenMount, I'll take over an abandoned city rec center, fix it up and put it to good use. GreenMount is as diverse economically, racially and culturally as is humanly possible.

High school pep rallies aren't what they used to be.

With Old School RAW coming to Baltimore on Monday, I got a chance to talk to a WWE Superstar that is constantly referred to as “old school," Antonio Cesaro. We had a chance to talk about his past year, his affiliation with the Real Americans, his rise through the independent circuit, his time recently at WWE's developmental organization, NXT, as well as his thoughts on Old School RAW. Q: How would you characterize your 2013 in the WWE? A: Well, I started the year as the United States champion, and now I am not the United States champion.

As Baltimore school board officials search for a new city schools CEO, they might do well to note the big gains in student achievement at schools in the District of Columbia where educators have made a longer school day part of the reform effort. It's worked well enough in Washington that Baltimore might well benefit from emulating that city's success. More instructional time in the classroom appears to have helped D.C. children not only boost their performance on standardized tests but do so more rapidly than their peers at schools with traditional 7.5-hour schedules.

Two private Jewish schools in Baltimore will close at the end of the school year after plans for a new, combined school failed to get off the ground. Boards of the Day School at Baltimore Hebrew, a kindergarten through eighth grade school, and The Shoshana S. Cardin School, a high school, had planned to combine the students in a new K-12 school called the Independent Jewish Academy of Baltimore in the fall. The two schools are located close to each other and near the Baltimore County line.

As many of you know, I was born and raised in solidly working class Arbutus. My family's Protestantism qualified us as an anomaly; the majority of the neighborhood kids were Catholic. Most attended local Catholic schools such as Ascension, Our Lady of Victory, and St. Mark's. A majority of them went on to graduate high school at Cardinal Gibbons, Mount St. Joe, or Seton. This school experience provided parents an attractive "three-fer": religious instruction, challenging academics and excellent athletics - at a reasonable price, to boot.
