…The Head Start incidents are just tips of the iceberg.
Upper Marlboro — During a school board meeting Thursday, parents and other speakers expressed outrage at leaders within Prince George’s County Public Schools over recent revelations of misconduct in the Head Start program but for many who spoke, they believe problems are much worse and deeper than the media is willing to report.
The Prince George’s County Board of Education heard comments from members of the public who demanded that leaders, including the CEO of schools Kevin Maxwell, resign. Already 5 Board members have requested Board Chairperson Segun Eubanks resign his position together with his vice Chairperson.
The school system’s CEO Kevin Maxwell said he has taken disciplinary action against six educators involved in the misconduct, but many speakers at Thursday night’s meeting said more needs to be done. One woman even called for the county executive to step down because the cover up involves Principals involved in real criminal activities because they are well connected and cannot be touched. It’s time to demand changes and demand proper investigations in these areas, so that we can have a new beginning right away!
