School Board deems November 'special time'

After taking heat for ignoring Veterans' Day, the lame duck Board of Education hastily passed a resolution November 14 - four days after the holiday had come and gone - to issue a dramatic wartime policy statement.

Here it is, according to the MCPS e-bulletin sent out today:

"The Board recognized the month of November as a special time to remember and acknowledge the men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States."

It still won't observe the federal Veterans' Day holiday, but for the School Board, unofficial after-the-fact "special time" is better than nothing. I guess.

And what did you do today for freedom?
