BOE Member: Safety in Technology Committee is Needed

This did not happen in Montgomery County.  

A motion to set up a Safety in Technology Committee was made by Ann Miller, Board of Education member in Baltimore County.  In the video clip of the March 1, 2016, Baltimore County Board of Education meeting you can watch as the Baltimore County Board of Education immediately shelved the motion without discussion. 

Sound familiar? That's how MABE trains Board of Education members in Maryland.  MABE indoctrinates school board members to not follow Robert's Rules of Order, and to not allow Board members to speak unless they have pre-approval from the chair.  No public process is allowed. Watch the video to see how that looks in a live Board of Education meeting.  


  1. They will try to silence any and all voices calling for safety for the students. This clip speaks volumes. please wake up parents.. before it is your child's wake you will be at.

  2. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil!

  3. The Baltimore County Student Member of the Board (SMOB) didn't say a word. She didn't even ask for discussion about tabling the motion. Why isn't the SMOB working to protect the interests of the students?

  4. This motion tied to the nearly $300-million STAT (Students and Teachers Accessing Tomorrow) 1:1 digital conversion to put a device into the hands of all 110,000 students. The plan's rolled out in elementary schools, and there are concerns about how this curriculum-delivery method is affecting the youngest learners. Read more here:

  5. With so much money going into computers, the infrastructure, class sizes and safety suffers. We need bus drivers, small class sizes, new buildings, air conditioning.. we don not need tablets for 6 year olds.
