Thank you, Nancy Grasmick, for sharing the positive news about Maryland schools in The Baltimore Sun ("The good news in Maryland education," June 20). As an active parent advocate for Dulaney High School, I've witnessed the incredible success over the past three years in their crumbling facility and sights that would shock anyone.

While I am proud of the good news and highlights, our Northern Baltimore County leadership needs to do much better with the maintenance, updates and rebuilding of the aging, dangerous structures littered throughout the area. Students are achieving and excelling, but I can assure you that there are ruined opportunities, sinking morale, staff burn out and neighborhood decline. In addition to Dulaney, imagine the triumph Baltimore County students and staff could accomplish if we build new schools and maintain others when necessary.

Baltimore County has a responsibly to our youth and the communities. The inequity across the state of Maryland is frightening.
