Is there a reason the Post has not covered the contract negotiations between the BOE and teachers.
In particular, despite the claim of Jo-Ann Armao of "ALL POWRFUL TEACHER UNIONS", these teachers have not been able to get a raise.
The BOE even gave back a surplus to the coun ty instead of paying its teachers more.

the teachers in Calvert County have not received a raise in many years.
The BOE refuses to give one.
As of a month or two ago, things went to arbitration. I don't know where they stand of today.

I think you have a dedicated superintendent, especially if he'd continue to lead a school system at what he's getting paid, in comparison to other schools' chiefs in neighboring cities (e.g., Montgomery County, the District of Columbia, Baltimore City). He's clearly not in it for the money. I applaud this!
