Meet our newest school board member

Our newest school board member has the support of the newly dominant reform bloc, and is a father of three MCPS children.

Christopher S. Barclay, 45, received the support of all board members except Sharon Cox and Steve Abrams to replace Valerie Ervin, who was elected to the County Council.

Barclay was treasurer of the re-election campaign of board member Nancy Navarro. He says he is particularly interested in closing the achievement gap between white and minority students.

Miranda S. Spivack of the Washington Post has the story.
