Hairston: Criticisms are personal, system is transparent
Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Joe A. Hairston said in a radio interview that he is “somewhat amused” by charges that the school system is not transparent and that recent criticisms of his administration come from people who have personal issues with him.
“It’s people with a personal agenda,” Hairston said. “It’s people with animosity against the organization or me personally.”
“I believe it’s more personal than anything else,” he said.
The schools superintendent also said his office is open and transparent in its dealings.
“I’m somewhat amused by the allegations,” Hairston said in response to Mitchell’s question about a lack of transparency. “People need to pause for a second and do a bit of research.”
