Seven Locks PTA chief rips school board's 'barely hidden agenda'

"The implications of this proposal are clear: Seven Locks will remain vulnerable to closure, and its students to redistricting in 2008," Seven Locks PTA President Harlivleen Gill wrote to the County Council concerning the MCPS poison pill.

"This is, of course, the barely hidden agenda of the majority of The Board of Education. . . . [It] is simply a different way for the Board of Education to obtain the result it has desired all along: build the Kendale school (although now on the Bells Mill site) and close Seven Locks."

Gill's comments are reported in the Almanac.
