Superintendent Dallas Dance’s Retweet Controversy Draws Attention at School Board Meeting

Some parents and students fought back against criticism of Baltimore County schools Superintendent Dallas Dance at the school board meeting Tuesday night, saying that he was right to show concern for students who might be fearful the day after the election.

Dance came under criticism for a retweet he made on election night that asked educators to reach out to students who may have felt maligned during the U.S. presidential campaign.

The tweet from Josh Starr, a former Montgomery County superintendent, said: “Educators: tomorrow pls show your muslim, black, latino, jewish, disabled, or just non-white St’s, that you love them and will protect them!”
