Mont. Co. to reconsider charter schools?

By Associated Press

The Maryland Board of Education has directed the Montgomery County school system to reconsider its decision to reject two charter school applications.

The state board found Tuesday that the Montgomery Board of Education failed to adequately explain why it turned down bids from Global Gardens Public Charter School and Crossway Community. It has give the local board 90 days to revisit its decision.

A Montgomery County schools spokesman says the local board will review the matter and "respond in a timely manner."

Montgomery is the largest school system in the state and does not have any independently operated charter schools.

Dear Washington Post,

There is no question. The question mark in the title is not correct. The State Board of Education did direct the Montgomery County Board of Education to reconsider their rejection of two Charter School applications.

What you have printed above as text is the AP version of the story. This is the best reporting you could do on this local education story? Seriously?

Interested readers can read the actual State Board of Education decisions:
