The Committee Will Be Named Tonight

I'm not going to say much about this. Tonight the MCPS school board will announce the membership of the new citizens advisory committee that will evaluate the sex education curriculum.

The die is cast, the school board knows who they're selecting, they know what is being done inside the system toward development of a new curriculum (or re-introduction of the old one), and they know how they're going to handle the fact that CRC and PFOX have refused to follow the official procedures for applying. The rest of us just have to wait until 9:45 tonight, which is when the board's agenda says the topic will come up.

The important thing is to keep the process moving. If the crybabies want to file another lawsuit, that should not affect the way the citizens committee conducts its business. Let the lawyers go to the courtroom, the committee to its conference room.

The board has said that nearly 200 people applied for the 15-person committee. They have had plenty of time to study the applications. I'm sure it was hard just figuring out who stood for what, but they had time to look into all of it, and they know the eyes of the country are on them now.

I only hope that the people they select will reflect the community. The people of Montgomery County know what's right.

Anon, I have a rule there that Morons' Comments Will Be Deleted. But you ... mmm, I don't know, I think you're just listening to a different station from the rest of us.

All TTFers should go tonight and tell that stupid O'Neill we won't put up with any more antics. CRC can't be on the committee or we'll start a move to recall her.

Anon, I don't know what you think you're accomplishing here, but I won't let this site be overrun with trolls. If you'd like to discuss the issues, please feel free to participate. If you've have nothing to say, don't say it here.

Well, I, for one, disagree with the other anon. CRC should be on because the Board agreed to let them on.

Sure they can be on if they applied like everyone else and followed directions as to how the applications should be done like everyone else did that will get a seat...including 3 nominees under certain criteria.

No special treatment...just all out following directions like everyone else was expected to do.

One of the anons is just confused- RecalltheMCSboard is CRC's first name- kind of like Recalltheboard AKA CRC or DBA CRC. I figure whatever happens- CRC/PFOX will sue sometime this year. I guess if some of these other fake docs- the ones who peddle laetrile and other fake cures- had big money behind them like FRC and FOTF- they could sue to get their poison added to the health curriculum.

Andrea- never anon

Jim K gets a seat on new CAC.

PFOX gets Peter Sprigg and CRC has their seat put on hold until they comply with appropriate nominee.

Very intersting list on new CAC.
