Not a single parent supported MCPS

Not a single parent from Seven Locks or Potomac elementary schools voiced support for the MCPS Kendale agenda at the March 7 County Council meeting.

"The Seven Locks replacement facility at Kendale best meets the needs of the students," Board of Education Vice President Sharon Cox (pictured) told two County Council panels in a written statement.

Not one of nearly 30 parents, students and community members agreed with Cox in their testimony, the Almanac reports in its March 15-21 issue.

"The council witnessed the overwhelming feeling against the Kendale site as person after person testified . . . and no voices spoke in favor of it," Seven Locks PTA President Harlivleen Gil tells the March 15 Gazette. "It was a very powerful night."
