First Baltimore Sun Report on my BOE Campaign

This is the first Baltimore Sun report on my BOE campaign. The reporter Andrew Michales emailed me questions and I answered them by email.

Wu, who currently has children in the school system, said his time on the Columbia Association’s Board of Directors has shown him how to incorporate diversity and equity into the decision-making process. Wu has represented the Columbia Village of River Hill on the association’s board and been a board member of the River Hill Village Association since 2015.

Giving children the motivation to achieve is crucial to his platform, Wu said.

“If our children are motivated to learn and excel, there will be no difficulties we could not overcome,” he said. “Each child has different potential and the teacher and school should help to find it and drive the student to achieve that with help from their families.”

Baltimore Sun: Made in Clarksville effort for Ellicott City Flood Recovery

I was quoted by the reporter Mr. Andrew Michaels:

Chao Wu, Columbia Association board member and father of two, said he was one of Amanda’s first customers to buy lion T-shirts for his family.

“I think it’s amazing for her, as a young lady, to get some friends and classmates and start this from scratch,” Wu said. “It’s great for little kids because they love animals.”

It is so glad that the kids continue working on this project using their talent. I believe they can develop a small business on this and support not only Ellicott City Flood recovery, but also others. It is always good to grow and learn. That are valuable lessons when they grow up.

Asian students make up almost 20 percent of enrollment in Howard County’s public schools. But Jean Xu, a Howard County parent who immigrated from China two decades ago, does not believe that this demographic is appropriately reflected in the county school system’s central office, on the school board, among principals and teachers and in parent-teacher associations.
