STAT-us BCPS received an abridged version of the video originally posted by retired BCPS teacher and education blogger Anne Groth. Both videos harken back to some of the original posts on this blog, when other BCPS watchers were trying to figure out what the heck was happening in our school system.

September 5, 2016: School’s Out … by Anne Groth: Bullseye!
A video was sent to me from an anonymous sender about the Baltimore County Public Schools and our superintendent, Dallas Dance. After I watched it, I cannot help but wonder if far greater forces were involved in the transformation of our school district. Was Dr. Dance just part of a larger mission when he arrived on the scene in 2012?
