Grasmick's Drop-Dead Letter to MoCo

Yesterday, the Examiner reported that State Superintendent of Schools Nancy Grasmick denied County Executive Ike Leggett's request for reconsideration of the county's $46 million fine. Here is exactly what Grasmick has to say.

Wordy, isn't she?

Now look, folks. Grasmick has been quick to claim credit for the state's number one public schools ranking for the second year in a row. How did the state attain that ranking despite the presence of the schools in Baltimore City and Prince George's County within its boundaries? Could it be because of the Montgomery County schools?

A little respect, please. That's all we ask. Err, and $46 million too.
