The decision by Howard County Education Association members to participate in the “Work-To-Rule” procedures has made national news. Last night on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News: https://video.foxnews.com/v/6235098973001#sp=show-clips
Ok…a couple of things about this mention on national news:
- He calls us Baltimore. When you are not from around here that is what we are called by most people.
- Yep – It is Fox News. I understand that even before any of you come at me about it. But it is still a national news story.
This is not the first time the Howard County education system has made national news. Multiple times during the redistricting process in 2019 major news outlets discussed Howard County. Here are a couple of examples:
Is this a thing for our school system? Have major controversies over issues (like redistricting / returning students to school) and then make the national news cycles…and not for good reasons?
I look forward to the day when we return to being mentioned for all of the positive things about our school system and not this stuff. Howard County has one of the best school systems in the nation and news mentions about that fact is what I look forward to hearing about in the future.
Here is additional information about the Work-To-Rule decision:
It was announced back on February 17th that the “Howard County Education Association members voted to authorize work-to-rule with 91% in favor of working-to-rule“. Work-To-Rule began on February 22, 2021.
