PGCEA is very disappointed that the Prince George's County Senate and House delegation ignored the vote of "No Confidence" taken by our Representative Council in February of this year and refused fix the structure of the Prince George's Public Schools. Over the past few years our educators' have watched
PGCPS lose $6 million in Head Start money, over 600 hundred educators placed on administrative leave, and a grading scandal that emanated from the Central Office. This year we have seen three school counselors recommended for termination for following instructions from Central Office the day PGCEA held a press conference on secret pay raises for Central Office and executive cabinet staff. How much clearer can it be that these are structural issues?
It is clear to PGCEA that State Senators in Prince George’s county believe that it is acceptable for the CEO to only be accountable to the County Executive.
There is no accountability to the PGCPS Board of Education not to the stakeholders and citizens of Prince George's County. Therefore it’s up to us to stand up and vote for elected officials with courage and conviction for the sake of the students, educators and the Prince George’s County community at large. We are interviewing candidates for the June Primary and looking for volunteers to assist in our campaign efforts if you are interested
