Abrams confesses: 'we're not transparent enough' - but faults community

Steve Abrams appears to agree with the Montgomery County Inspector General that the board is "not transparent enough."

It isn't the school board's fault, of course. It's the fault of the community members who demanded transparency and accountability.

Commenting on the school board's credibility problem, Abrams says in the Almanac, "Part of the reason is we’re not transparent enough. . . . [But] this is a sophisticated community that knows how to engage in guerilla warfare and they’ve done a marvelous job of undermining our credibility.”
