Tamathia Moore Flowers said her 10th-grade son applied to Carver School for the Arts in Towson and the Baltimore School for the Arts when he was in eighth grade hoping to pursue his interest in the performing arts. When he didn't get in, he went to his local zone high school, which was Randallstown. But Flowers said the school was a disappointment. With so many discipline and behavioral problems, she said, her son had difficulty concentrating. "After five weeks [of school], I was so horrified, I asked for a sit down meeting," she said.
