Bowers of MCPS says parents care more about property than their own kids

MCPS Chief Operating Officer Larry Bowers is still sore that parents of Seven Locks Elementary School children have been fighting the Kendale project.

Like other Kendale backers in MCPS, Bowers questions the motives of the parents, saying they care more about their property values than they do about their own children.

Bowers says in the Washington Post, "Many of those in the community who oppose this project have placed the interest of property values ahead of the interests of students."
