Edward Burroughs III, P.G. school board member censured
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - The Maryland State Board of Education says school board officials in Prince George's County were correct to have censured a board member who visited a high school to investigate a truancy complaint.
The school board had earlier issued an unpublicized decision reprimanding Edward Burroughs III, who at 18 is its youngest member. That decision was reaffirmed Thursday by the state board.
Burroughs in January visited High Point High School after receiving a complaint about truancy. The district superintendent and the board member who represents the area where the school is located had asked Burroughs to let them handle the situation themselves. After the visit, the school's principal called the superintendent to complain.
Burroughs tells The Washington Post that he "got the job done" even his actions upset others.
