Perez: County rigs school impact tests 'so everyone passes'

County Council President Tom Perez implies that growth policy is rigged in a way that favors out-of-control development at the expense of public schools.

"The county’s growth policy does not adequately account for the impact on schools, Perez of Takoma Park said," according to the Gazette. "Schools are allowed to exceed real capacity, yet the school impact test is set 'so everyone passes,' he said."
