From District A Board of Education candidate Bob Frisch:
This week my opponent in the Board of Education election decided to go negative when he sent out an email full of distortions, innuendo, and other falsehoods regarding my training, experience, and qualifications to be a member of the school board. What was so obviously missing from this email was any reference to what he would do to support the children, parents, and staff of our schools, or how he would deal with the many difficult near and long term issues facing Harford County Public Schools. This incident is only the latest in a series of similar tactics.
In contrast I have clearly outlined a plan of action and addressed specific concrete measures I will take as a member of the school board in response to issues affecting our school system. My candidacy has been presented in a positive and thoughtful manner. Parents, children, and taxpayers deserve and demand that Board of Education members be skilled, well versed on the issues, and committed to the hard work ahead. They also expect that potential school board members have the highest degree of integrity. Actions do speak louder than words.
I have maintained throughout the course of this campaign that voters need to look beyond the resume of the candidates, to find out who they are as real people, as this will give them the truest sense of how that candidate will govern if elected. The citizens of Harford County will choose what type of leadership they expect from school board members. If my opponent’s mud slinging demonstrates the kind of leadership you want on the school board then vote for him. If on the other hand you expect and demand more of your elected officials then vote for me. The future of Harford County children is at stake. The choice is yours. Please choose wisely because we only have one chance to get it right.
Board of Education candidate
District A (Edgewood, Joppatowne, Joppa communities)
One does not need to dig far to see that Jansen Robinson is a pillar of the Edgewood community, and the vast experience he has with community organizing, advocating for the people of his community, and working for school safety is without question. Robinson is WAY more than qualified for this seat. I am also a teacher, and while I would see Mr. Frish’s experience as a teacher refreshing to have on the board, the experience and community involvement and respect that Jansen Robinson affords has strongly earned my vote for him. Robinson is a fully-qualified candidate, and only people blinded by either bitterness, racial bias, or political affiliation would suggest otherwise.
Please tell me what he has done in Edgewood and for this community? Don’t need details. Just a list. I’m dying to know.
Jansen has been the chair of the Edgewood Community Council for years now. He has worked with Sherriff Bane and others on countless occasions on behalf of his community (the biggest impact of which is that he was clearly instrumental in advancing the southern precinct location and staffing). He is VERY connected with other active leaders in the community and the Joppatowne Community Council, works with many people in his town promoting projects, advocating for the needs of poorer Edgewood residents, sometimes physically helping people with house projects and the such. I cannot list how many times somebody has said ‘I have a problem with xxx, let’s get Jansen’ (be it loud kids, drug deals, fights with neighbors, and so forth). He IS the community leader and advocate for Edgewood, and deserves this school board position as much as anybody could. What is more is that I know that he is best for the kids of the Edgewood community, and that is really why I support him, even over another teacher.
I can tell you that Mr. Robinson is also a polarizing figure on the ECC. Many fine people have left the organization because he is abrasive and lacks real leadership skills.
Also remember that there are other communities in this district – Joppatowne and Joppa. He has done nothing there. He only seems to be concerned with Edgewood. He appears to be more suited for a real political office (County Council, State Delegate), but not the school board.
Why do you need to bring “bitterness, racial bias, or political affiliation” into this discussion? Just because people may not agree with you is no reason to throw stones. Doing so undermines your position. But then again isn’t that what this letter is about? Objecting to similar tactics that do not really address the important issues facing our schools.
You must be one of his kids. He has zero experience in dealing with school issues and I cannot name a single thing he has done in Edgewood. Have you been to an Edgewood Community Council meeting? It’s a total love fest with everyone patting each other on the back despite having done nothing. I was there when the big topic of conversation for over 20 minutes was the use of the bathrooms at the Edgewood Rec Center. Robinson couldn’t be less qualified for that slot.
I agree says
Those meetings are interminably long and nothing gets accomplished. Jansen talks a good game (but not if you actually listen to him – very inarticulate) and may be a good organizer (that is open for debate) but most importantly he lacks real leadership skills, which will be critical to solving our school systems problems.
Sounds like Mr Jansen should be a carpenter or social worker and not a member of the school board. You did not name one thing that Jansen has done that relates to his duties of the school board.
Frisch is doing lots of posting as other names says
Frisch is posting as lots of different names. When considering responding- think “who benefits if I believe this?”
broken record says
All I hear from you is Edgewood, Edgewood, Edgewood. There is more to Harford County than Edgewood. It doesn’t sound like Mr. Robinson is concerned about anything else. We need more than that on the HARFORD COUNTY Board of Education.
Chris Rohe says
“He is VERY connected with other active leaders in the
community and the Joppatowne Community Council”
As Chairperson of the Joppa/Joppatowne Community Council, I can
not recall the last time Jansen has communicated with me.
Sorry Chris says
At lease people attend the ECC meetings, the Joppatowne’s meetings have always been poorly attended. Every person that I have met has said the ECC meetings are far better than the Joppatowne ones. The ECC has made many efforts to partner with the JCC over the years, but it’s you who choose not to communicate!
“My meetings are better than YOUR meetings” This is a message board for adults. Kids get to the back of the line. Grow up.
You validate my earlier post and are a perfect example of why so many good people have left the EEC. Better if you like endless pontification with no results.
Sorry Chris says
And what have either of you done? Oh, that’s right…NOTHING! Try being part of the solution for a change! Stop talking and start doing!
Bruce O'H. says
A “community organizer”. Thanks for telling me !! Based on recent American history, that’s code for Progressive. I don’t vote for those people. Based on current history, I’ve noticed that only racists use the race card to advance their otherwise unpopular political goals. Nice try on that score, but it doesn’t work any more. As far as qualified, I’ll take your word for it, but if he’s not telling the truth about his opponent, then he is a prevaricator. I’m not interested in a qualified prevaricator.
Jansen is thoughtful, and supports Charter schools. Frisch carries the Union load.
a matter of opinion says
So you support taking funds from Edgewood schools to run what are nothing more than publicly funded private schools. Tell your constituents in Edgewood that they don’t have books or computers in their kids’ classrooms because you want charter schools. I’m sure the citizens of Edgewood will be happy to hear that.
A charter school was tried in Harford Co. and failed. Troubled schools can be fixed from within without taking needed funds from our schools. Edgewood Middle is a perfect example. You were at the celebration of the school getting off the state watch list. I hope you won’t try to take credit for that too. Maybe that success story wouldn’t have happened if their funding had been cut as you would have it.
Your just mad because the HCEA didn’t back you. It certainly didn’t go unnoticed that your benefactor (Dion Guthrie, who is supposed to be the big union supporter, he is president of a union local after all) was not backed by the Harford Co Deputy’s Union. You guys are Democrats. When you can’t get the unions backing that says something that all other Democrats should pay very close attention to.
Frisch was a democrat until right before he filed.
Also, he is in the pocket of the unions. Clearly, and unequivocally.
your grasping says
Frisch obviously did not post this comment. And isn’t it true that Robinson recently switched from Republican to Democrat when he was considering running for County Council. Guess he figured he couldn’t win a council race as a Republican in an area controlled by Democrats. Looks like a cynical switch solely for political expediency. Would seen foolish for Frisch to change parties as part of some strategic plan.
Robinson was absolutely a Republican (which is why Craig appointed him to the Edgewood Community Council). Let’s also note that Sen. Nancy Jacobs just recently made an appearance at a Robinson fundraiser and endorsed him. Sounds to be like something is afoot with this (supposedly) non-partisan School Board race.
Guthrie supports Robinson. Guthrie hates Helton. Jacobs supports Robinson. What better way for Guthrie to stick it to Helton and Jacobs to protect herself in Edgewood against Helton. Makes perfect sense to me but also says something about those involved doesn’t it?
Oh, it definitely makes sense. But you said exactly what I was thinking about the integrity/motives of those involved. Makes me sick.
I think it is funny how many different names Frisch is posting under. It’s almost like he thinks people read this website.
He should be teaching.
I’m not Frisch but that doesn’t mean you’re less of an ass.
Another opinion says
Edgewood Middle is already going to lose a lot of its funding when it goes off the watch list. It will be interesting to see where it goes. Have to remember though too that many of these schools are on the “list” because certain populations aren’t performing and it could be something like special education students and/or non English speaking students not the overall population.
Maybe we wouldn’t need Charter schools if HCPS would have considered a vocational school in the Route 40 corridor when it was doing its planning over the past 10 years. They added space at Aberdeen, Joppatowne and completely renovated Edgewood with no vocational opportunities. Ask the current Board Member from Edgewood what he was thinking all these years.
Not true the added space at JHS was paid for with federal money for Homeland Security programs which JHS has.
Take our Countyback says
One of the things I can’t stand in elections is the mudslinging that goes on. While I can’t think of anything that Robinson has actually done for the Edgewood Community, I do know that Frisch went to Edgewood High and is a well respected teacher. If the results in Edgewood are any sign of the work Robinson has done, than I want Frisch!!!
an observation says
If Mr. Robinson is so well liked and respected in the Edgewood community why did voters in Edgewood pick Mr. Frisch over him in the primary? The poll numbers show him winning 9 out of 10 precincts by a more than 2 to 1 margin of victory, including beating Mr. Robinson in the neighborhood Robinson lives in. That should tell you something! It would seem that Mr. Robinson’s support is not as wide spread or strong as some might think. It looks like the voters did their homework and they chose the other guy.
I think that all of you need to take a look and open your eyes, Edgewood has taken a great turn for the better under the leadership of Jasen, He has taken an active role in working with the elected officials in making positive change in the community, one thing I do know is that when is is called upon to represent the community he rises to to the task and additionally he stayes ahead of the issues. I will say this for anyone that lives in Edgewwood to say that you can’t see what he has done only means that you are not involved in your community also it means that you are only concerned about your back yard and not the community as a whole, get your head out of the clouds his work is documented, and if Mr. Frish was that concern about the schools in his district he would have chosen to work in this school district not Balto County and also he would have been involved in his community if he actually cares.
an observer says
Just because you don’t work in the community you live doesn’t mean anything. Most people don’t work where they live. Doesn’t mean they don’t care. Everybody chooses their own way to be involved if they want to. Doesn’t mean you don’t care or if you don’t belong to a certain club like Lions or Rotary or ECC doesn’t mean anything. Frisch’s literature says he is involved in other ways, PTA, church, parks and rec. Those are worthwhile groups to support too. Just a different way to be involved that is all.
Please, please, please name three things that Jansen Robinson has done to better the Edgewood community. Posing for photo ops with Guthrie and others does not qualify.
As flawed as the old method of having the governor name BOE members is and was, dragging the school board into the mudlsinging arena of electoral politics is going to cause many problems for our school system.
I say this having been a 31 year HCPS educator and having been involved in professional development, school improvement and attempts to establish a cooperative collaborative environment for teacher union and BOE relations.
How long before we have curriculum issues become political issues.
Fie on the politicos who demanded that we head to an elected Board. There was never an honest attempt to revive and modernize the old community advisory system that did, up until it became far more politicized, recommend some excellent school board members.
True, but we are stuck with the elected board so now we must do the best we can to put the best people in those positions. The three school board races do offer voters a clear choice between candidates. Voters need to put politics aside during these elections or the ones who will be hurt the most are the kids.
It’s good to have elected school board folks – otherwise they are beholden to the governor.
glad we homeschool
Mr. Frisch: How do you feel about students being academically ineligible for getting one E? Do you think it is worth it to put so many kids out on the street after school who may be better served staying busy and having some teachers and/or other mentors working with them to be successful.
My question for the school board which has gone COMPLETELY unanswered for years is there a pattern of a certain class being failed? A particular teacher who fails more kids than others (who may be either a good or bad teacher who knows), or a student who is a learning problem that isn’t being helped.
I haven’t heard this question asked but it is extremely relevant in District A and I think all of the punishment is against students when in fact it may not be all of their fault, and this policy can actually hurt a lot more than it helps. I can telll you firsthand that my daugher had a horrific teacher and ended up with a C in her class. She learned nothing for 2 years. I was not allowed to see what the midterm average was and am now being told I have to find out midterm information from HCPS. How many other parents have these type of issues and why are the students the only ones suffering? What about the kids who don’t have someone advocating for them?
Maybe your daughter needed to study more? Are you seriously blaming it on the teacher? Did everyone in the class get a “C?” If so, then the teacher should be investigated. If not, maybe you should spend more time with your kids after school.
I don’t know who you are Watcher but you have no idea what you are talking about. This teacher isn’t around anymore and was teaching a foreign language class of 33 students. My daughter should have never gotten the grade she did but too many adults are worried about protecting themselves and not the students.
And by the way, I wish I could tell you what the other students got in terms of the midterm and final exam. I asked for that information repeatedly and I as a parent couldn’t get it. If you have an inside line to HCPS and getting information that parents should have about such things, pleaes post it on here.
Not worried about protecting adults or students. But as a parent of two school age children, I’m sick of parents blaming the schools, teachers, etc when their kids struggle in school. I make time to go over their homework with them after school and make sure everything is done and handed in on time. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist. This is the problem this country is facing. Everyone is quick to blame someone else without ever turning the spotlight back on themselves and accepting some much needed personal responsibility.
Other students grades are absolutely NONE of your buisness. Federal Law prohibits that information. BTW sometimes lots of poor grades are the fault of poor student prep and poor parental support. If you have an E you need to go to study hall. Not football practice.
No parent has the right to know any other student’s grade but they are allowed to know the average midterm and final for the entire class so you can compare your child’s performance to others in that class.
And just so you know, we have SOME teachers in this school system that are really bad.
I agree we have bad teachers but you should be complaining when your child is getting this bad instruction not wait until they get bad grades and then complain. Perhaps your child meritted a C. Did you know the grading factor? Did you look at your kids work? Did you conference with the teacher during the year. Have you even discussed grading and assignments with the teacher before complaining? Did you sit in on a class? If your child got the same instruction and recieved an A would you be complaining?
clarify some bad teachers
What school do you work in?
I’m not a teacher nor am I employed by the Harford county or any school system. Swear.
Bob Frisch says
My personal view is that students are in school first to get an education that prepares them for college or to be workforce ready. Extracurricular actives while an important aspect of a student’s education is secondary and a privilege granted after they have met minimum academic requirements. In my opinion an “E” grade does not meet that minimum standard.
The reality is that the vast majority of students not eligible for extracurricular programs are failing more than one class or struggling in others as well. The school system already has in place a procedure for appeals in cases where a student in having trouble in one class. Waivers to the exclusion rule can be granted, the student placed on probation and their academic progress monitored. If no improvement is seen or the student slips back into a failing situation the rule is enforced. Students with multiple failures have other issues (frequently outside of school system reach) that need to be addressed.
I have students in my classes that want to play sports and know they must maintain a certain level of academic performance to do so. Believe me, when they want to they can perform academically – I see it all the time. When the season is over some of these students regress only to pull their grade up again so they are eligible play another sport in a different season.
I do not want a student to see an athletic or other extracurricular activity as the highlight of their school experience. I would much rather see them experience some other highlight that was built on the sound academic foundation they received in our schools. There are other avenues to success in school – extracurricular activities need not be the only one.
Simply said some teachers demand more than others. At the beginning of each year I research the academic histories of all my students. When I look at specific grades I place a value not on the letter but on who the teacher was. A “B” in Mr. Smith’s class may be an outstanding grade because he has high standards and demands much of his students. On the other hand an “A” in Mr. Jones’ class may not hold as much value to me because the course may not have been as challenging or I know Mr. Jones is a soft grader. Teachers have reputations, and while Mr. Smith has overall lower grades in his class that does not mean that the students learned any less or that he is an inferior teacher to Mr. Jones. This is why tying teacher pay to student performance is such a difficult issue to agree upon.
I will tell you I am a tough teacher in the sense that I have high expectations in my classroom. Students know what is expected of them and what they need to do to pass or earn superior grades. I am honest and fair. Even students that have not done well in my class still talk to me and respect me because they know that they didn’t do their part in their own education. I have three banners hanging in my classroom which puts my philosophy about education in a nutshell. They read “Grades are not given in this classroom they are EARNED.” “Students earn those grades they are WILLING TO ACCEPT.” and “Education costs will you buy now or pay later?”
If elected I intend to approach my duties and responsibilities on the Board of Education with the same degree of commitment as I do in teaching my students. I give it my all.

I completely understand and get what you’re saying. There are absolutely bad teachers, just as there are average, good teachers and also excellent teachers. Conversely, there are bad, good, excellent students. I was an excellent student, so much so that I had teachers trying to convince me to be a scholar (not in a million boring years would I have done that as a profession–a job with no actual “doing” of anything). My French instructor in middle school was so boring and unimaginative that I actually fell asleep in class with my eyes open-my friends attested to it. I dreaded that class and every class felt like a year of my life that I couldn’t recover. I didn’t get a bad grade, but it was a real struggle to stay interested and motivated and I stopped taking French and switched to German. I also had a horrible English teacher in high school. But I had friends who were good students who did poorly in a class because of a teacher, yes. I get it, I agree with you, and I’m sure you know your daughter’s potential. Her teacher probanly sucked. At least you paid attention when the poor grade came, as some parents don’t even do that much. You shouldn’t have to supplement and stand in for a teacher. Can you provide your daughter with help–absolutely–but you shouldn’t HAVE to do it? NO, you shouldn’t have to be a teacher’s assistant. There’s no harm in people letting a teacher know they need to be better. They’re supposed to challenge kids to do better, and good teachers also challenge themselves to be better and continually improve and grow in their profession and impactfulness.
On another note, teachers can be highly effective school board members. Perhaps Frisch is the one for the job, I don’t know too much about it. I’ll have to do my research.
Thank you Angie. You did an excellent job of articulating an issue that CDEV doesn’t seem to understand. It is the parents’ job to support their kids, make sure they come to school prepared, do their work, be respectful, and help their kids if it is possible. Parents shouldn’t be expected to TEACH their kid a subject. CDEV asssumes I am just complaining about a grade but I went to the teacher, the school, tried to get her to explain her grading policy which she didn’t have written down and didn’t tell the kids. Went to her class, observed her and understood completely why so many of the kids were having problems. This teacher is “retired” now and there are many students who didn’t LEARN what they were supposed to in her class. That is not my opinion based on a grade – that is a fact.
I am not complaining about teachers who outline clear standards and teach the kids what they are expected to know but I am not going to defend the ones who have no business in the classroom. It is insulting to the profession and the teachers who do excel. I find it interesting that now the parents are expected to teach their kids what they aren’t being taught in school but yet we are disparged by people like CDEV who keep pretending like there isn’t a problem and it is just the parents and students. I don’t completely blame these teachers either. The curriculum and the way it is delivered in high school (block schedule) is contributing greatly to the problem especially in foreign language, math and science.
I am hoping an elected school board will listen and be willing to look at some of the decisions made years ago that don’t seem to be benefting student performance.
I never said anywhere that you should be expected to teach. Clearly you did not read my post if you are responding to the one above. I simply wanted to know if you are the parent who bullies teachers for grades or if you truly are involved in your childs education which does require helping your child. There are bad teachers and they give good teachers a bad name. Just like their are bully parents who give good parents a bad name. Bob explained the rigor example to a T. An A should be really earned. When teachers hand out A’s like they are candy they do not teach hard work. Grades should be based on a grading factor whcih should be distributed at the begining of the year. Assignments should be graded objectively with a rubric deliniating expectations. I found when I taught regular children that when you did that there was not much to argue with. If your child’s teacher did not do these things then you have a legitimate grip. I only ask when did you raise an issue when the grade came out or when the work came back without these things. Did you ask your kid about school?
You never answered my last question
If your child got the same instruction and recieved an A would you be complaining?
Yes I would because she didn’t learn any French and she was very upset because she couldn’t continue on with it because she was afraid she would be too far behind.
Again you no nothing about my involvement with my students and I have more than one. I don’t bully teachers and I have spent numerous hours volunteering in and out of the classroom.
OK that is why I asked. I saw too many parents as a classroom teacher who bully teachers for a grade. My wife and her friends from other schools say teacher bullying is fairly common. Report card time is the worst. People who would not bother to be involved come out of the wood work. The really bad ones are the ones that never once discussed the grade with the teacher. As a volunter in and out of the classroom I am sure you have seen some of them and know a few too. So I understand you. You saw assignments that you had issues with the grades on. You never saw a grading factor. You discussed the grades with your daughter and then brought your concerns to the teacher. Still unsatisfied I presume you went to the principal about the grading and assignments? What was their response? How many classes did you observe? What where some of the issues in the class?
Bob Frisch says
My opponent has clearly decided to make party affiliation a primary issue in this election. This morning he is in Joppatowne placing fliers filled with more distortions and lies on peoples doors before they wake up.
Where is the integrity? Is this the kind of person you want making decisions about how your children are educated or deciding how our tax money is spent? Have you seen anything from him that says what he wants to do on the Board other than the community needs to be involved? I recognize that the school board has done a poor job in that regard and incorporated that in my platform and campaign slogan – “YOUR Voice”
Education is not about politics, at least at the local level. Do you want the school board to be just another place where it becomes politics as usual? Do we want our children to become political footballs for the sake of a Board members’ political agenda? I spent twenty years on the Baltimore Police Department and no one ever asked my political affiliation when they need my help. I do not believe that anyone cares about that in the classroom either. Parents want to know the teacher is qualified and competent, that they are there for the right reasons – putting kids first. The same should be true for school board members.
Are you disgusted by this kind of politics? We constantly hear that people don’t like this kind of mud slinging in elections. They want campaigns to be run and debated on the issues, and there are a great many significant issues facing our school system that the candidates should be talking about. My positions are clearly stated for everyone to see. Can you find his?
I have said it before. How people act in their personal lives is how they will govern. If you want this kind of leadership on the school board then vote for him. If you expect something better then vote for me.

Sorry Bob says
I have read the handouts that you are talking about. You keep mentioning distortions and lies, however you never mention what is distorted and lied about. You have mentioned this in more than one post, but you keep failing to mention what in not correct. I find this very confusing. It seems to me like you are just angry over this and you can’t prove that anything in the handouts is a distortment or lie. If you were smart, you would be telling us what exactly is distorted and lied about, and then try and set the record straight. I get the feeling this will not happen because what is in the handouts is really true, and that’s what bothers you the most.
@Sorry – um, the word is “distortion” not “distortment.” Given your defense of Robinson and free use of the english language, this must be a post by Councilman Guthrie.
Sorry Bob says
Watcher, I see you make post on justa about every topic on this website, however in every one you only manage to show how little you know about what is really going on in the community. You apparently spend all of your time looking at the computer, and not at the community around you. If you did, you would see what’s really going on.
My comment was directed at a few other remarks made and directed at Kate, not just yours, Cdev. Who cares if all the steps you believe are required in order for Kate to make a sound determination of the skills and competency of the teacher were done. A parent can check all those things you feel are necessary, check some of them, or not check any of them and the end result is still the same if the teacher is lousy. A principal isn’t necessarily going to know that 30% or more of the students in a given class had to cheat in order to pass because the teacher sucked. Even a lousy teacher can hold a decent class, or two, or three, if a parent is in attendance. The problem is that a series of effective classes over a school year have to be sustained in order for a teacher to be at least a good teacher. If a teacher isn’t good at their job it doesn’t matter what their grading factor is (unless, for example, the only way at least 50% of their students are able to pass their class is by doing extra credit).
In my experience, the best teachers (the real cream of the crop) were so effective that a student didn’t need additional assistance outside of their classroom unless the subject matter itself was one that was more challenging to the particular student than others (for example, English being harder to learn than math for a given student). I’ll share a personal example. In high school I received special approval to enroll in a chemistry class that I didn’t have the math requirement for but wanted badly to take. I was at a severe disadvantage without the needed math, but it was approved because I was such a strong student. The first 2 months of that class the teacher worked with me afterschool a few days a week and I was really struggling. In the third month, I turned the corner and became the top 2nd student in that class with the help of that excellent teacher coupled with extra work of my own. I got an A for the year. Had that chemistry teacher been a poor one, I would likely have failed the class. Thank God an excellent teacher (who the student body recognized as being a great teacher) was there to teach me chemistry when I wanted to take it too early. My lousy French teacher graded fairly but she sucked at teaching. Every once in a while a class would be almost enjoyable, but she still sucked at teaching. I didn’t want to be in another class taught by her and I wasn’t the only student who changed languages. Others cheated because it was the only way they could pass, because she sucked at teaching (she wasn’t the first French teacher anyone had had). A principal isn’t going to know that 30% or more of the students in a given class had to cheat in order to pass because the teacher sucked. A parent who’s in touch with their child knows when a problem grade is not the child’s problem.
Dalat 68 says
Both Robinson and Frish need to knock this off. Seems to me they ahve not once addressed the real issues facing the schools and how they will better manage the nerly $500m budget. Bet whoever wins will too busy thumping his chest to relize there is some hard work ahead. I would not vote for either one.
also a teacher says
Not true. Mr. Frisch has clearly articulated his positions concerning the HCPS system on his webpage (www.BobFrisch.org) and what he do as a member of the school board if he is elected. He has also made several policy specific posts on the Dagger in other articles.
