…against cellphone towers at school sites.
The president of the Prince George’s County chapter of the NAACP wants the county school system to halt the construction of cellphone towers on school property until school officials review information about the possible dangers that the towers could pose.
Bob Ross joined a chorus of residents who recently testified as part of an ongoing protest of the school system’s plans to allow 73 schools in the county to become sites for cellphone towers.
Nearly 1,100 people have signed an online petition calling for school leaders to stop the construction of the towers.
Ross recently told Schools Chief Kevin M. Maxwell and the school board that he considers the cellphone towers a matter of environmental justice with concerns being raised about the exposure to radio-frequency radiation.
“If there is a possibility to cause harm to our children . . . it is your responsibility to look at all the possibilities,” said Ross, who decided to join the group of concerned residents after members of the newly formed Safe Schools for Prince George’s County met with members of his board.

OPINION AND CALL FOR ACTION
Chairman Segun Eubanks is clearly misleading in the above Washington Post article. The truth of the matter is that, he was not even on the Prince George’s county Board of Education when the Board of Education for Prince George’s County took less than 40 seconds to vote on the Milestone Master Lease in 2010. What is he talking about that the BOE has done considerable homework? The Board of Education for Prince George’s County did not do their assignment. This Milestone Communications deal was hawked at the Maryland Association of Boards of Education (MABE) parties mixed with alcohol in Ocean City out of the public view. Chairman Segun Eubanks is only interested in making money for himself at the expense of the community. We must say no to these shennanigans!
If the Board of Education for Prince George’s County want to do their Homework, they should watch this Harvard University lecture.
Prince George’s County school board chairman Segun Eubanks listens to parents and staff speak. He has been laughing all the way to the Bank recently…
