A Breakthrough for School Choice?

Who’dathunkit?  A significant blow to the stone walls of the Montgomery County Public Schools monopoly — and it’s wielded by Jerry Weast.

The MoCo school superintendent has finally recommended approval of a charter school in the county.  The application is the third from the Community Montessori Public Charter School.  The Board of Education in the County, historically focused on defending MCPS from competition, must approve the application.

The Board of Education has previously rejected all applications,  with such extreme bias that the state has berated them.   Professionalism and concern for the best education for the county’s children have taken a distant back seat to protecting their fiefdom and privileges.  Has the call for choice in education finally reached even the board of education?   They are scheduled to vote on Thursday.
