School Board President Believes Superintendent Is Acting Insubordinate

Apparently the level of mistrust among members of the Allegany County Board of Education as well as general dysfunction is even greater than has been on public display in recent months. In a wide ranging interview Thursday morning on WCBC’s “Dave Norman Show”- school board president Robert Farrell discussed ethics opinions being sought; investigations in to past actions of a board member; and his belief that the superintendent is acting insubordinate.  Since the new board was sworn into office in January, meetings have been dominated by conflict, debate and split votes. Farrell said that there have been any number of occasions in the past few months where he, or other board members, have directed Superintendent David Cox to pursue a particular course of action- and in some cases he has ignored those directives.

    This is what happens when you let right wing extremists into government who don’t know what they’re doing. They bring the whole system to halt and the children pay the price for it. The extremists are more into personal power than working together for the schools.
