Washington Post reporter attends BOE Committee Meeting, Does Not Report on BOE Discussion

This is the last week that the Gazette will be published.  That means that the Gazette's education reporter will no longer be around to cover Board of Education meetings. 

On Monday, we got a taste of what The Washington Post will be doing with regard to covering Montgomery County education issues.  The Washington Post's Montgomery County education reporter showed up at the Board of Education's Policy Committee meeting, but didn't file a report on what transpired at the meeting.

What was on the agenda for the BOE's June 15, 2015, Policy Committee meeting?  Just the revision of the BOE's 26 year old Child Abuse Policy.  Apparently, The Washington Post does not feel that discussion of how a public school system handles the sexual abuse of public school students by staff is newsworthy.


  1. It is pretty hard for the staff to stuff the mouth with both hands and write a report at the same time.

  2. Who was the reporter?

    1. So you don't even know who the Post's Montgomery County education reporter is? That says a lot about the Post's coverage of MCPS.
