School board process a 'circus,' says student member

"I’m uncomfortable with how antagonistic this entire process is becoming and it’s becoming kind of a circus," says the 17 year-old student member of the Montgomery County Board of Education.

The student representative, Sebastian Johnson (pictured), says in the Almanac, “There is a way that we can do this and work with the County Council.”

By his statements and actions, Johnson appears allied with the two school board members - Valerie Ervin and Nancy Navarro - who have been demanding that MCPS be accountable to the public.
