'Other concerns remain' to be probed

"Other concerns remain" after the recent revelations of MCPS wrongdoing, Wayne Goldstein writes in the Washington Post:

"1) the lack of outside examination of many MCPS activities;

"2) the failure of the school board and MCPS to respond to community newspaper stories about delayed and underreporting of incidents of school violence;

"3) whether the superintendent and certain board members use closed meeting sessions to discuss what is supposed to be discussed in public sessions; and

"4) a blurring of the lines of authority between the superintendent and the board."
