How did Jane Schuchardt beat a candidate with more money, more endorsements, more political connections and more name recognition in the race for Howard County school board?Campaign observers and the candidates themselves say she succeeded by relying on a simple message and gaining strong support from two disparate groups of voters -- Howard teachers and parents who send their children to area parochial schools.Schuchardt, a retired Howard teacher, led community activist Francine Wishnick by almost 3,800 votes Tuesday night, 52 percent to 47 percent.

Francine Wishnick clinched last night one of the top two spots in the primary election for the Howard County school board, and Jane Schuchardt narrowly led Virginia Charles for the second position in a race that remains too close to call until absentee ballots are counted.Dr. Schuchardt and Ms. Charles were separated by just 177 votes with all of the precincts reporting.But with 925 absentee ballots mailed out by the Howard County Board of Elections, it may not be clear until March 15 which of those two candidates will end up vying against Ms. Wishnick for the single school board seat in the November general election.

Meanwhile, the school system in one of Maryland's most popular counties keeps growing and growing. With three new schools opening next fall, it will have a student population approaching 40,000.

Howard County school board candidate Jane Schuchardt promised the county's teachers yesterday that, if elected, she will give them a cost-of-living increase next year. But her opponent, Francine Wishnick, said the schools have too many competing priorities to make any salary guarantees.Both candidates tackled questions from the Howard County Education Association (HCEA) on a variety of subjects, including equalizing resources between older and newer schools, the inclusion of special education students in regular classes, prayer in school and the proper place of creationism in science instruction.

Seven months of diligent campaigning paid off for Courtney Watson last night, when voters gave her a solid win over her opponent, Barry Tevelow, in the race for the single open Howard County Board of Education seat. "I'm very excited that the margin is what it is, and it just goes to show that my message has gotten across to the electorate and they believe what I'm saying and what I want to do," Watson said. "Now I'm looking forward to taking a couple weeks off and spending some time with my husband and children, regrouping and then coming back and working really hard to solve some of these issues with rest of the board."

Howard County schools Superintendent John R. O'Rourke turned down a 3 percent raise offered to him yesterday by the Board of Education, ending months of speculation about a possible pay increase. School board Chairwoman Jane B. Schuchardt said O'Rourke would not accept an increase in his salary during such lean economic times. "We appreciate John's decision," she said. "I think he wants the public to know that he understands what a tough year this was." Questions had been raised earlier about how much, if anything, the board might offer the superintendent in a tight year.

Howard County Board of Education member Laura Waters resigned yesterday from her position on the five-member panel, with three years left to serve in her term. In a personally delivered letter to County Executive James N. Robey, Waters said she wanted to leave the school board because "I no longer believe that I can represent my constituents fairly if my integrity and principles are compromised. I have not made this decision lightly, but have thought about it for the past five months." Waters, 54, could not be reached for comment, but county and school officials said the news was surprising.

Howard County Board of Education members have agreed to modify the Listening Post portions of their twice-monthly meetings and continue to discuss ways to make them better. Beginning with the meeting Sept. 21, the board will broaden the topics community members can bring up at Listening Post, which is a time set aside before each open board meeting for people to speak. People will be able to speak about any item of concern, even if that item is on the meeting agenda. For as many years as some board members can remember, speakers have been restricted from broaching topics slated to be discussed at that meeting.

Stephen Bounds was elected to the Howard County school board in 1994 amid questions about his agenda. Critics feared he would bring a far-right religious philosophy to the board. Supporters embraced his "back-to-the-basics" campaign theme.Two years later, the tables have turned.The critics of 1994 are some of his biggest boosters today, describing Bounds as a thoughtful, forthright board member -- even when they disagree with his positions. They also praise the way he has stepped outside the traditional role of board member to educate parents about drug and alcohol abuse.

THE INJECTION of creationism into the Howard County Board of Education race never seemed to faze the local electorate.Jane Schuchardt responded in questionnaires during the campaign that she supported introducing the religious concept into the school curriculum. Though that alone might seem enough to disqualify her in the eyes of many suburban voters, the Columbia area resident emerged victorious last Tuesday over rival Francine Wishnick.Why? For one, after initially giving clumsy replies to her stance on creationism, her later explanations apparently satisfied voters that she would not chip away at the constitutional wall between church and state.
