Is it any surprise that Baltimore County Public Schools continues to demonstrate a failure to communicate (”Baltimore County executive says school officials are refusing to provide information about ransomware attack,” Dec. 11)?

Beginning in 2012, BCPS began a pattern of ignoring the concerns of its stakeholders. Issues went unaddressed, questions were not answered, and by 2018, a superintendent had gone to jail.

Can Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. bring any pressure to bear to change this pattern? We can only hope.
