Question Trump, not Dance
As a former Baltimore County Public Schools educator and parent of a scholarathlete BCPS graduate, I am responding to Ann Miller’s commentary (“BCPS board member: Dallas Dance must go,” Nov. 15). She obviously has questioned Dallas Dance on several occasions and has finally found a cause which brings her to think she can pursue asking for his resignation regardless of whether other board members agree with her.
While Mr. Dance’s tweet may not have included all students (and Ms. Miller has a point in questioning that), it addressed the issue brought forth by a person who repeatedly made nasty comments about the groups included in that tweet — creating an atmosphere of fear and denigration which we are now seeing in actions being taken across our country.
Ms. Miller needs to first ask that candidate, now a president-elect, to more firmly call for everyone to act in a more loving way to each other regardless of how they voted. It is his responsibility to quell these fears. As for Mr. Dance, his explanation that Ms. Miller quoted is sufficient.
