Once again, Anne Arundel County students are about to choose a student member of the school board. As the other seats moved from appointed to elected on the Board of Education, the choice for student member — known by the unlovely but widely used acronym SMOB — is voted on by representatives from student councils and then appointed by the governor. For a student, it is a position of immense responsibility and considerable power.
Anne Arundel students wield rare power to pick a voting school board member. They should respect it.
