The county's delegation to the General Assembly has approved a proposed change in state law that means the next student elected to the seven-member Howard County school board likely will have the right to vote on curriculum and some policy issues. State Sen. Allan H. Kittleman and Del. Warren E. Miller, both Republicans, voted against the bill. Kittleman is concerned that the student could vote with a minority of three board members and "could kill something." Miller agreed, saying, "We elect the school board to decide these issues." Are you for or against giving the student member limited voting rights?
