Maryland governor, Montgomery County school officials spar over reopenings


Maryland's governor says it's time to get kids back in classrooms. Montgomery County officials say they need something from the state. First. We want to get our schools open as quickly as possible. We just need the vaccines to do it safely, Montgomery County Council President Tom Tucker says. So far the state's only given the county enough shots to vaccinate about 2% of its residents. Governor Larry Hogan said last week. He wants all schools to open to some in person Learning by March. 1st Hooker says the governor made that decision without collaborating with the county does Meant first, and that only makes our job harder, state officials said last week. Reopening decisions should not be based on vaccine availability.
