The new student member of the Baltimore County school board, Roah Hassan, called during Tuesday night’s meeting for an end to division among the body’s members. Hassan, a rising senior at Perry Hall High School, was sworn in earlier this month. She used her first board meeting to express her thoughts on the needs of a school system that has over 111,000 students, and what she thinks the board could be doing to meet them. “We are a house divided,” Hassan, who is 16 years old, said Tuesday. “I have seen this board, and I have seen the tension and dysfunction that it entails. I have seen division in a space where we cannot afford to be divided.”
