No appointment to the Baltimore school board yet
Some months ago, we reported that the state school board had been interviewing and vetting candidates to fill the vacancy created by the departure of school board chair Brian Morris. We noted that no one had done a very good job of vetting Morris, who had a history of financial problems and other issues.
So here we are in the second week of September, and the word out of the Maryland State Department of Education is that the state board has not yet recommended names to the governor and the mayor. Those two officials must jointly appoint city school board members. We can't wait to see who will be appointed under the state board's more thorough vetting process.
