Elect board members who work with our schools [Letter]

The Flier's endorsement of Bess Altwerger for the school board is a mistake. The Flier justified the endorsement by saying she is a founder of Save Our Schools and a former professor at Towson University. When I went to the Save Our Schools website I found that it is strongly opposed to the Common Core Standards (as is Altwerger). The website also had a link to the Republican National Committee's recent resolution to oppose the standards, which they incorrectly call a curriculum. The standards, unfortunately, have become political.

These standards have been adopted by Maryland. Howard County Schools have been working to meet these standards with our students over the past couple of years. The last thing we need is someone on the Board of Education that wants to undue the progress being made. We need Board members that are working together with the schools, not against what they are doing. Mike Smith or Christine O'Connor would have been better choices for the board.
