  • Board Of Education Considers Options To Shift School Hours Later

    In October, the Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) Start Time Task Force released its report detailing several options for modifying school start times. Former interim Superintendent Mamie J. Perkins created the task force in February and charged the group to research and develop possibilities for changing daily school start times for all school grade levels, believing the extra sleep potentially gained by starting school later in the day would be beneficial for adolescents, particularly high school students.
    Over the past eight months, the task force - which comprises a diverse representation of stakeholders, including the county’s school system, police department,...

  • A Republican Governor Will Add Balance To The Legislative Process

    There is change in Maryland. Republican Larry Hogan has been elected as the seventh Republican governor of our state and the first since 2007, when Robert Ehrlich finished his one term as governor of Maryland. This win ended the trifecta that has controlled our state government during the O’Malley administration. While the Democratic party still controls the Senate and the House of Delegates, there is a Republican governor to add some balance to the legislative process.
    The change in the Maryland General Assembly, although rather small, is an increase of Republican seats in the Senate and the House of Delegates. The Senate has gained two more seats, bringing the number to 14...
