A Blue Ribbon Task Force, created to examine the disgraced special education programs in Frederick County Public Schools, has made an understandable but tragic mistake.

The group has decided that its meetings will not be open to the public.

My question is how is it that setting a policy of knowingly using unlawful restraint was not criminal conspiracy by the top administrators?


Think from the perspective of the parents in the child. Do you really want the details of your child's special needs to be broadcasted out and shared by the whole general public? It is a genuinely validated, privacy issue. On the other hand, the parents and administration should be allowed a forum to bluntly hear how complicated it may be for educators to "do their job" with students who have known, complex behavior issues.
