Wicomico County Elected School Board Legislation Sponsored in House and Senate

Finally - after several years of trying to find a resolution on how to go about getting our school board elected - a measure is at hand. Last night HB-966 and SB-99 was filed in the Maryland Legislature that might enable our County to finally allow our community to choose its leaders as opposed to special interest. It could not come at a better time as public pressure is mounting for close scrutiny of the entire educational establishment. Almost everything in the educational gambit is in play this year - (i.e. teachers pensions, elected school board, re-employment of the Superintendent, school budgets, school construction, firings, sexual harrassment, incest - you name it). In this authors humble opinion - this legislation is long, long, overdue.
