Rushern Baker's planned school coup d'etat, Part two, takeover bill language

The strategy for getting legislative approval of Rushern Baker's school takeover seems to be to have the General Assembly act on amendments to already introduced bill HB 1107, a bill with the very misleading title, "Task Force on the Membership and Operation of the Prince George's County Board of Education."

Previously, the sponsors of this bill, in correspondence and meetings with citizens groups, denied that the bill was intended to be a vehicle for takeover or weakening of the current elected board of education.  It now appears that they lied to us (big surprise).

As part of this craven betrayal of the will of the voters of Prince George's County, Delegate Dereck Davis (D-25) is proposing a 42 page amendment to HB 1107 that will replace the language in the bill originally proposed by Delegate Geraldine Valentino-Smith (D-23A).
