Behind the Curtain of CR-112 – Part 3
This is Part 3 of a series of Maryland Public Information Act (MPIA) response releases that provide a glimpse behind the curtain regarding the planning and rollout of the Howard County Council’s CR-112 resolution in August 2019 that called on the Howard County public school system to ‘desegregate’ its schools.
The following text messages were exchanged on the day before and day of the press release for the CR-112 resolution between County Councilwoman Christiana Mercer-Rigby and County Councilwoman Liz Walsh. Ms. Walsh expresses her serious concerns about the resolution and there is very interesting discussion on the possible conflation between socio-economic status/poverty and race.
