It is obvious that the decision of the superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy to court-martial two of the midshipmen charged with having sex with an irresponsible drunk (who The Sun refuses to identify while having no qualms about destroying the reputation of those charged) was influenced by the preposterous lawsuit filed by the woman's attorney, the intent of which was clearly just that ("Two former Navy football players face court-martial in alleged sexual assault," Oct. 10). This, despite a contrary recommendation by the judge who heard the eight-day case and had the opportunity to evaluate the credibility of the witnesses and the value of their sworn testimony.

George Arlotto this week became the third Anne Arundel County superintendent in as many years submitting a capital budget proposal - but he said working within the school system for 10 years helped him hammer out the $163.4 million request. "Not a lot of changes were made, based on what we've done in the past and where we're headed in the future," said Arlotto, who was the system's chief of staff before becoming superintendent in July. Arlotto replaced Mamie Perkins, who served as an interim superintendent for a year while the school district sought a permanent replacement for seven-year Superintendent Kevin Maxwell.

Such is the nature of Internet culture that when the general public has the opportunity to weigh in on what qualities a new superintendent of schools for Harford County are most important, the results are being collected and tabulated by a website with the unlikely name Surveymonkey.com . It would almost be worth it for the firm behind the service to have used the name classclown.com for school related surveys.(Google says the domain is available,...

While I believe that many of Baltimore County School Supt. Dallas Dance's intentions are noble, I take issue with the means he has employed to implement them ( "Stop beating up on county school superintendent Dallas Dance," Aug. 25). His actions not only have left many people frustrated and upset with the superintendent but caused a significant part of the community to mistrust him over his stonewalling, the lack of real dialogue and transparency at meetings and his repetitive meme of "looking forward to working with the community" that is never realized.

As a former elected Howard County Board of Education member and a retired Howard County educator, I'd like to give my support to Howard County Superintendent, Dr. Renee Foose. I was not happy with the results of the survey of her performance that came out from HCEA. One of the roles I had as a Howard County educator was principal. Being a leader is a challenging task and awesome responsibility. You share credit when things go well and you take the full blame and responsibility when things go wrong.

The greatest challenge the next Maryland state schools superintendent may face is that he or she isn't Nancy S. Grasmick. Grasmick has been such a powerful figure in education for two decades, by virtue of the relationships she built with legislators, board members and district superintendents, that it will be difficult for anyone who follows to have the same independence, observers say. She is "a dominant force. She has done things her way. And the next person coming in I think will be in the shadow and will have to establish their own way of doing things," said former Maryland Gov. Parris N. Glendening, who sometimes sparred with Grasmick.

I've been an avid reader of The Sun, but if the paper wants to be a credible publication it has to be fair in its criticism of Baltimore County School Supt. Dallas Dance ( "Balto. Co. schools' song and dance," Aug. 19). I have two grandkids in the county schools, and they are excited to be there because of Mr. Dance, whom they know by name. Yet every time I pick up the paper, The Sun says he has critics, and they're always the same people: Jim Brochin, Mike Collins and Pat McDonough.

The new superintendent of the Naval Academy said Thursday that the institution is a national leader in confronting sexual assault and sexual harassment among students, and should be helping other schools tackle what he described as a widespread problem. The Naval Academy has drawn national attention for the alleged assault of a female midshipman at a party in Annapolis and the subsequent investigation of three members of the Navy football team. The prosecution came amid a growing public focus on sexual assaults both in the military and on college campuses.

If Baltimore County residents had any doubts about the wisdom of moving toward a hybrid appointed/elected school board rather than the all-appointed version we have now, they were likely erased last week when the board voted to hand Superintendent Dallas Dance what amounts to a $27,000 raise. Not only did the board employ what is at best linguistic sleight of hand to provide Mr. Dance a bigger raise than his contract would allow, but it also shut down any public discussion of whether the raise was warranted.

On Friday morning, in the auditorium of Loch Raven High School, more than 300 school administrators closed their eyes for 30 seconds. Baltimore County schools Superintendent Dallas Dance had asked them to think about what could make schools "opportunity rich" for all students. "Those are the types of conversations we're going to have over the course of this year," Dance said in the school system's administrative and supervisory meeting to kick off the school year, which begins Aug. 25. The meeting for administrators and principals focused on equity, opportunity, engagement and relationships in county schools.

The Baltimore County school board gave Superintendent Dallas Dance a $5,000 a year pay increase this week, part of several changes to his four-year employment contract. The increase raises his annual salary to $265,000. School officials said the percentage increase was equivalent to the 1.9 percent average increase teachers will get, in addition to a 3 percent bonus. The contract also will be amended so that Dance will not be allowed to take any outside consulting jobs. The board's ethics panel found him in violation of its rules in taking a part-time job with a professional development company last year.

Michael Middleton calls poverty Baltimore's biggest enemy. The $1.1 billion plan to overhaul the city's schools is fine, he told Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and new superintendent Gregory Thornton, but the economic issues facing families need to be addressed first. The city's problems "won't be fixed by brick and mortar," the Cherry Hill Community Coalition representative said. "That's where I disagree with you," the mayor replied, adding that even the city's poorest areas produce good students, who desperately need a place to succeed.
