Delegates to the Maryland State Teachers Association's annual convention this month issued a vote of "no confidence" and censure against the state board of education.

"Governor William Donald Schaefer's appointees on the state board are dragging their feet on school reform while imposing bureaucratic straitjackets on the schools," said Jane R. Stern, the M.S.T.A. president, in seeking passage of the resolution.

The National Education Association affiliate and the state board have been in conflict recently over a number of issues. The teachers' union, for example, opposes a board plan to permit college graduates to become teachers without completing a traditional training program. (See Education Week, Oct. 3, 1990.)
