Jazz musicians play gigs all over the place, but some of these concerts emotionally hit home. In the case of Alex Brown, it's an upcoming concert at his former high school that has special meaning for him. This Wilde Lake High School alumnus is a member of the band playing for Jazz at the Lake on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 7:30 p.m., in the Jim Rouse Theatre at Wilde Lake High School. It's the 10th annual fundraising concert sponsored by the Wilde Lake Band Boosters. "I love Columbia and coming back is a really nice break from the city," said Brown, a 26-year-old jazz pianist, referring to the present New York City apartment he shares with his brother Zach, a 23-year-old jazz bass player and Wilde Lake alumnus who is also a member of the band for the upcoming concert.

So much of what seemed fresh and innovative in public education two decades ago has gone by the wayside. The back-to-basics movement, itself now more than a decade old, was a recoiling to the liberal policies of the more radical 1970s. Only a few relics of that era survive, such as a smattering of open classrooms.But little compares to the dinosaur of experimental schools, the nationally recognized Wilde Lake High in Howard County. At last, it too is about to undergo a transformation, a back-to-the-future revamping that will bring it more in line with traditional methods of education.

About 11:07 p.m., the pilot and three flight officers were responding to a police call when the undetermined problem occurred, police said. The pilot, a tenured officer and certified flight instructor, "spotted Wilde Lake High School nearby" using night-vision goggles and performed the emergency landing in the field, which sustained minimal damage.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who says he has seen a broad spectrum of the nation's schools, from successful to struggling, left Wilde Lake High School this week singing not only its praises but those of the Howard County school system. During a roundtable discussion at the school, Duncan posed questions to Wilde Lake students about whether the system known for its diversity works for all of its students. Columbia's Wilde Lake, where school officials say more than 90 percent of students pass high school assessments before the 12th grade, has one of the county's most diverse student populations, with no ethnic group totaling more than 41 percent of its enrollment.

I WAS AT the gulag the other day, visiting inmates. Yes, I'm talking about Wilde Lake High School. With parents decrying the repression of students' democratic rights there, I had reason to be apprehensive about setting foot in the place. A journalist who might reveal to the world what an utterly demoralizing, stifling, police-state mentality exists at Wilde Lake might find himself "disappeared," Nicaragua-style.I don't mean to make light of the very real tense situation at Wilde Lake, which apparently has some students, and teachers, fearful of expressing their opinions.
