Montgomery council members ask county, state to handle MCPS inquest

August 22, 2023

Two Montgomery County Council members requested Monday that state and county watchdogs investigate the county school system’s handling of reported allegations of sexual harassment, bullying and retaliation by former Farquhar Middle School principal Joel Beidleman. Dawn Luedtke (D-District 7), whose district includes Farquhar, and Council President Evan Glass (D-At Large) requested in a letter that Montgomery County Public Schools “halt the work of Jackson Lewis,” a Baltimore-based law firm that was hired to investigate claims made by several Farquhar and school system employees.
