Frustrated Baltimore County Council blocks routine school district budget item to signal displeasure and get answers on parental concerns over late buses and other issues. “Parents can’t go to work every day and not know if their children are going to be picked up,” said Councilwoman Cathy Bevins. In a show of frustration, the council voted 5-2 to turn down the county schools’ request for a funding transfer. Such shifts within the budget are usually a routine matter, but council members used the opportunity to express disappointment in how school system leaders have responded to problems.
