The redistricting process happening with the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) continues to get local, regional and national news coverage…this time with WBAL 11 (out of Baltimore) on October 6th: https://www.wbaltv.com/article/11-tv-hill-redistricting-plan-howard-county-schools/29366492
Pat Warr-Marshall was on the show defending the current plan while Dr. Hemant Sharma was on the show opposing the plan. I personally like the fact that they had people talking about this issue on both sides…and doing it in a really good way with each other.
It is a very interesting discussion and one worth listening to…so be sure to give it a listen:
One thing is for sure…this conversation is not going away between now and November 21st. One can hope that every discussion is as good as this one was on TV (I know that is not realistic…but we can all hope).
The Howard County Board of Education will continue to hear testimony tonight as part of the “Overflow Public Hearings” (Families currently zoned for Glenelg HS, Marriotts Ridge HS, Reservoir HS, River Hill HS) starting at 6:00pm. There are 108 people signed up to testify tonight.
