UPPER MARLBORO, MD — Following our recent coverage concerning lack of diversity among top management in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) and pressure from the Latino leaders, PGCPS recently appointed Maritza E. González, Ph.D. to fill the key position of Officer for Diversity, Latino/a Affairs. In her new role, Dr. González will respond to the academic and social needs of the diverse ethnic groups of constituents served by the school system. She will also work to increase organizational awareness and develop communication and outreach strategies with a special focus on Latino children, parents and communities. Reform Sasscer movement is particularly keen to see promotion of new initiatives by the new officer in bridging the gap to address MS -13 problems and to increase transparency and communication. The delivery of services in the new era of accountability is not only important for our students but to the parents as well. >>> Read more PGCPS Press release. >> Washington post
