Haughey changes tune; maybe MCPS is county agency after all

School Board President Charles Haughey, who just days earlier had insisted that the county school system was a state agency and not liable to the county Inspector General, now hints it might be a county institution after all.

"When there is a profound climate change as there has been suddenly on that site, I suspect the council wants to look at it differently," Haughey says in the Gazette. "And the council is our funding body and we want to respond to council concerns."
