ANNE ARUNDEL — The Board of Education unanimously adopted a resolution supporting Black Lives Matter and the social justice efforts of Anne Arundel County Public Schools and other school systems.

The Board of Education of Anne Arundel County said they believe that the march to true equality begins when a community insists on providing its children with an honest accounting of the past and imparting to them values of kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.

The Board stated they support efforts being led by Superintendent George Arlotto and his staff to enhance opportunities for all of Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ students to more honestly understand and learn about the past, the present, and the role they can play moving forward to eradicate hate and bias from the community.
