Despite complaints from some parents, the Frederick County Board of Education has upheld the decision by county Schools Superintendent Theresa Alban to continue using the controversial Social Studies Alive! third-grade textbook until 2014-15.
The school board announced its decision on Wednesday, nine days after board members allowed a group of parents to appeal the superintendent’s recommendation in a closed session.
