Neighborhood residents say their children won't be allowed to attend new Baltimore school


The $42 million Elmer A. Henderson School, to be operated by Johns Hopkins and Morgan State universities, was designed to be an anchor for its East Baltimore neighborhood and a magnet for new residents. Many neighborhood residents thought that they would have a chance to send their children to the school, known as Henderson-Hopkins, but, The Baltimore Sun reports, some residents say their children have been shut out from coveted slots in the school. When it opens next school year, it will be attended primarily by students from outside East Baltimore, including children of Hopkins employees who were given priority enrollment.
