In reference to Laurie Taylor-Mitchell's letter to the editor ("Dance is too inexperienced," April 24), the people of Baltimore County have been blindsided by the opaque political behavior of school board president Lawrence E. Schmidt and his cronies.
A superintendent who has little experience in the classroom and obviously no experience with aging infrastructure will only rubber stamp the board's political leanings. Mr. Schmidt's hidden agenda goes back to his ridiculous ruling on the destruction of green space in Mays Chapel Park for a new school and not considering looking at the other viable areas presented at board meetings.
Obviously, the political pecking order created this decision, and a neighborhood will be negatively impacted, with no concern from our political leaders. It was a failure on the part of the school board and the County Council in Civics 101. Students should take note of how not to behave.
