Why would she want to come here?

That is what board members who voted FOR the newly elected Superintendent of Schools for Montgomery County said and what members who voted against her have said.

That's embarrassing.

In fact, the entire special board meeting that ultimately selected the news superintendent was mind numbing. 

Check it out on wsfa.com.

We heard references were not checked, salary questions unanswered, input from members of the school system ignored.

We saw contentiousness and animosity and division.

If the newly elected superintendent watches this, I wonder if she will accept the job.

We must do better.  Our school system has challenges but strong leadership has moved it forward the past few years and strong leadership can continue to move it forward.

That leadership must come from everyone associated with the system.
