For the first time in a couple years, the Montgomery County Board of Education held a special session that wasn’t contentious and possessed no crazy vibe of desperation.
The board members discussed actually finding the best deal on a furniture contract instead of throwing hundreds of thousands of dollars at someone because they’re a friend. And that body of folks started in on the district’s Chinese language program — which may or may not be approved for the next school year.
What’s crazy? Donna Wilson was the voice of reason, asking for further study of whether or not the program is beneficial.
Watch it for yourself:
The first full, open, non-special session meeting of the board will take place next Tuesday, January 27.
And it should be good.
