Board of Education Condemns Online Harassment of Student Member of the Board

February 28, 2022

The Board of Education is aware of and is appalled by the recent insulting and inappropriate language directed at  Student Member of the Board (SMOB) Hana O’Looney. Recent postings on Twitter and other social media have chosen to use vile language and personal insults to attack Ms. O’Looney and are clearly harmful attempts at cyberbullying. This behavior is reprehensible, particularly when adults are targeting a student. We are committed to   respectful discourse about the important issues affecting Montgomery County Public Schools.

The board applauds the engagement of our community sharing ideas, perspectives and opinions; the board condemns the actions of anyone who does so in a manner harmful to any individual.
