No School? No Way, Montgomery County Superintendent Says
Montgomery County, Md., Schools Chief Jerry Weast has rejected an on-line petition from students and parents to declare a day off from classes Jan. 20 for the inauguration, reports the Post's Marc Fisher.
Among his arguments: Weast says it's "unrealistic" to believe that many MoCo students would actually head downtown to brave the massive crowds expected for the Obama inaugural. And he argues that they'd learn and see more if they stay in school and watch on TV with their classmates and teachers.
