Seven Locks PTA chief paddles school board

In another sign of how the Montgomery County Public School board is at war with local Parent-Teacher Associations that stand in its way, the Potomac Almanac reports about "poisonous" accusations against school officials.

While Seven Locks PTA President Harlivleen Gill has made no such public accusations, she did paddle the school board the night before Superintendent Jerry Weast suddenly flip-flopped and said he would not recommend the surplusing of the Seven Locks school.

“I am very concerned about the decisions you have made and the manner in which you have made these decisions,” Mrs. Gill testified to the school board.

“We expect the school board to be impartial and transparent in its dealing with the community and I am disturbed that it has been neither.”
