It boils down to one elected body telling another elected body what to do, or at least trying too. If parents in Allegany County can send their kids to Washington County, and parents in Garrett County can send their kids to Allegany County, then it will balance things a little. However, what adjoining county is going to send their kids to Garrett County? When Delegate Beitzel was talked in to supporting the bill, I bet he didn't think about that, because Garrett County will lose students to Allegany County. Commissioner Valentine told me, under this bill, parents will have a choice, they can send their kids to schools within their county/district, or send them across county lines, and the receiving county will pay transportation cost.
