Blank Present for PACE Reception, Members Point to National Search for Position

January 24th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The interim superintendent of schools for Allegany County, Jeff Blank, was present at Thursday night’s PACE reception in Annapolis.  The elected board appears committed to a national search for a permanent superintendent and Blank was noncommittal about whether he will apply for the post.

Board member Deb Frank said a national search is needed for superintendent.

    Waste more money that we don’t have to find somebody that doesn’t understand the situation that when you are losing students your budget does not increase more money does not equal better results for god sakes look at Washington DC

    Brian, you say that more money does not equal better results? Following that logic, we can cut school budgets exactly how far?

    Our schools are underfunded. Belair elementary had an HVAC failure that didn’t get fixed for quite a while because – you guessed it – there was no money. Washington Middle School has a water leak that is more than a year old – and no money to fix it.

    Let’s be clear on this. We either fund education or we fail as a society moving forward. The days of being uneducated and getting a job that will allow you to live a half decent life are over.

    Nowhere am I suggesting we should allow waste but when we routinely see teachers in Walmart at the beginning of the school year spending their own money to buy school supplies, something is wrong. And based on your comment, you might want to think about if that problem is you.
