The Sun dis­plays anti-Ho­gan bias

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Bill Ritzel, For­est Hill

In the re­cent ar­ti­cle by Liz Bowie and Car­rie Wells on the school cal­en­dar is­sue and Gov. Larry Ho­gan’s tight­en­ing of his waiver pol­icy, it is hard not to no­tice the great im­bal­ance be­tween pro and con sources quoted (“Ho­gan is­sues sec­ond La­bor Day ex­ec­u­tive or­der,” Oct. 11).

Noted as against Gover­nor Ho­gan were a com­bi­na­tion of leg­is­la­tors and ed­u­ca­tion or­ga­ni­za­tions as well as views from the at­tor­ney gen­eral’s of­fice sug­gest­ing Mr. Ho­gan lacked author­ity to set cal­en­dar lim­its. Quoted as in fa­vor of the waiver tight­en­ing was Mr. Ho­gan’s spokesman!

Why­dothe au­thors present the is­sue as if the only one in fa­vor is Gover­nor Ho­gan him­self? What about teach­ers, par­ents and stu­dents who want the longer sum­mer for many rea­sons in­clud­ing par­tic­i­pat­ing in and en­joy­ing the Mary­land State Fair that runs through La­bor Day?
