Washington Post: MCPS judgment in question

Critics of the MCPS decision to grant school credit to student protesters "has some questioning whether the school system is allowing an outside group to push its political agenda on students," according to the Washington Post.

"I'm taken aback by it," says parent Melissa Andersen. "I think it's poor judgment."

"It's the wrong thing for the schools to be pushing," says another parent, Brad Botwin. "This is way outside the balance. You can send kids to a nursing home, but a rally? This is not learning."
