Will Montgomery County Close Schools? The Plot Thickens...
Last week, Montgomery County, Md. schools Superintendent Jerry D. Weast recommended that the county not close its schools for inauguration day.
Looks like he has some opposition. According to a story in today's Post by Daniel de Vise:
A Montgomery County school board member is offering a resolution to declare Inauguration Day a holiday in Maryland's largest school system, against the recommendation of Superintendent Jerry D. Weast.
Montgomery school board member Christopher S. Barclay (Silver Spring) introduced a resolution Tuesday to declare a holiday, noting that the inauguration of the first African American president will be "unlike any event that we are likely to witness again in our lifetimes."
The board will consider the resolution on Dec. 9. You can read the full story on washingtonpost.com.
