School board has a leadership deficit
Some elected bodies act resolutely. They weigh facts and quickly make a decision. Afterward, they stick to it. Other public bodies are more amenable to change. They consider their options and cast their votes. As circumstances warrant, they sometimes reconsider.
And then there are bodies like the Montgomery County School Board, which is downright squishy. When it does reach a conclusion after interminable delay, the odds are good it will back off at the first grumblings from parochial interests.
