I read the recent commentary regarding the Baltimore School for the Arts and can understand what Patricia Schultheis was saying about helping disadvantaged students like Jabril, but the BSFA has standards ("Who is responsible for Jabril?" May 19). Yes it's a public school but the school maintains standards that all of our public schools should have. It's a shame that the standards of regular public schools have diminished so much that the children are running the school, some teachers only do they have to because their hands are tied and parents are missing in action. The topic should have been about how to bring other city schools up to the standards of BPSA, Western High School and a very few others.
