'Ferocious and bizarre' actions damage MCPS credibility

"There are grave new concerns about the school system's credibility, due to the initially ferocious and bizarre response by a majority of the Board of Education and by many high-ranking school officials, all of whom attacked the methods and conclusions of the inspector general's report as well as the character and motives of the inspector general and others."

So writes Montgomery County Civic Federation leader Wayne Goldstein in the Washington Post.

"Board members Steve Abrams and Sharon Cox continue to defiantly challenge the authority of the inspector general to research and write this or any school report without the express permission of the school board."
