Live Discussion With Nancy S. Grasmick
A defiant Maryland State Board of Education voted yesterday to renew the contract of Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick, brushing aside objections from the governor and two leaders of the General Assembly.
The divided vote, taken during a three-hour, closed-door session, dramatically escalated a bitter power struggle between Grasmick and Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), who has said the long-serving schools chief should be replaced when her four-year term ends in June.
Grasmick will be online Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 2:30 p.m. ET to discuss her reappointment and explain the issues and her position on education policy.
