AEGIS STAFF REPORT | February 28, 2013
Four students in Harford County Public Schools were arrested in the past several days, including one accused of stealing milk from the cafeteria throughout the school year. The other three students all were charged with being disorderly in their respective schools – two at Joppatowne High School and one at Edgewood High School. Last week, a 16-year-old boy was charged with theft less than $100 after he allegedly stole a carton of milk from the cafeteria at Patterson Mill High School, then admitted he's been taking a milk daily during this school year, according to a Harford County Sheriff's Office police report.

The Anne Arundel County school board adopted a $1.02 billion operating budget last week for the next fiscal year that includes funding for employee pay increases and the money to open a new contract school. But the panel criticized county government for taking money from the school system's health fund balance to foot those bills. The board unanimously adopted the operating budget, which falls shy of the $1.04 billion proposal that interim Superintendent Mamie Perkins offered in December.

A Baltimore circuit judge upheld yesterday the state's authority to turn over the operation of three failing city elementary schools to a private company, rejecting an attempt by the Baltimore Teachers Union to block the move. In a written ruling, Judge Stuart R. Berger called "entirely proper" the State Board of Education's entry into a contract with Edison Schools Inc. to run Gilmor, Montebello and Furman L. Templeton elementaries, three of the worst-performing schools in the state. Because closing the three schools was not viable, Berger wrote, the "only lawful and plausible option was to contract with Edison to perform the services that the local [school]

For years, schools in North Laurel struggled to do a lot with a little. Little funding, little parent participation, little partnership help from community organizations and agencies. But now the state Department of Education has recognized the little that the schools had to work with, and turned it into a lot. Laurel Woods Elementary, Murray Hill Middle and Atholton High have received a state grant worth more than $2 million over three years to help implement a program intended to increase academic achievement, safety, health and wellness and recreational services for North Laurel children.

Plans by the Archdiocese of Baltimore to combine three Catholic schools next fall to cut costs and boost enrollment are angering some parents of children who attend. They are particularly upset about an edict by the Catholic school system's superintendent prohibiting other schools in the archdiocese from accepting midyear transfers from the affected schools - St. Anthony of Padua, St. Dominic and Shrine of the Little Flower schools - for fear of a mass exodus. Parents who don't want their children to attend the new combined school are calling Superintendent Ronald J. Valenti's decree - issued in a letter to principals shortly after the Nov. 17 merger announcement - unfair.

Baltimore County schools dealt with reported threats on three separate campuses Thursday morning, as officials worked to quash rumors and assure parents their children are safe.

Baltimore's school board will likely decide later this month whether to allow Edison Schools, the for-profit education management company, to continue operating three elementary schools where academic results have been mixed. Given Edison's lackluster record, city school officials should resume managing the schools. The three schools - Montebello, Furman L. Templeton and Gilmor - were taken over by the state Department of Education in 2000 and turned over to Edison. At the time, the three schools were among the city's worst, marked by poor test scores and chaotic environments.

Seven years ago, Baltimore school officials reacted angrily when the state education department seized control of three failing elementary schools and turned them over to a for-profit management company. But as soon as tonight, as the state returns the three elementaries to local control, the city school board is expected to vote to continue the partnership with Edison Schools. City officials said they were swayed by significant improvements in the culture of the three schools, Montebello, Furman L. Templeton and Gilmor, particularly increased parent involvement.

"Why do no white kids go to school here?" A 14-year-old ninth-grader asked me this question earlier this semester about the school she attends and where I teach. Smart and genuinely curious, she asked the question without any of that world-weary irony and moral casuistry that often attends questions from teenagers and, more generally, questions about school segregation in present day America. More, her question was not shaded with the language of inequality or achievement gaps or school reforms or global competitiveness.

To do that, we should ensure that the dozens of new and rebuilt schools now being planned indeed become neighborhood hubs and true community schools.
