Anne Arundel County (Md.) district plans to add walls to open-space schools

June 3, 2009
Parents say lack of walls is distracting for students

From The Annapolis Capital: For 40 years, open-space schools have fueled a battle in Anne Arundel County, Md., between parents who say the lack of walls is distracting to students and officials reluctant to commit enough cash to fix them. But that fight may be ending. School officials plan to put walls in all the open-space schools over the next few years, starting with two pilot schools last summer and continuing with another five this summer. The County Council has agreed to fund another $8 million worth of walls, so another four or five elementary schools soon should be added to the list.
