The historic Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Baltimore has received a $30 million make-over much to the delight of its students. Groups of giggling, excited teenagers entered the renovated school foyer, light streaming in through the large glass windows.

The school boasts a new library, lecture rooms and laboratories. Also, state of the art seminar rooms. And it wasn't just the current students who were impressed. Dr. Lewis Randall graduated from Dunbar High School in 1949 and said this will make a huge difference for students.

Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, attended the opening. She says this facility sends the right message. Baltimore city students returned to school today.
