Segun Eubanks – Brother in Law to County Executive Baker and the board have requested biggest budget to date without accountability initiatives as part of the matrix to the State and the County Council. 

PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, Md. (ABC7) — Five members of the Prince George’s County School Board are demanding the resignation of the chair and vice chair of the school board on Tuesday, according to ABC7 News reporter Brad Bell.

A letter from the board members was submitted to Rushern L. Baker III, the Maryland County Executive:

Board members are also criticizing PG County School’s CEO Kevin Maxwell for a lack of leadership. This stems from the federal Head Start funding program scandal. Last week, the federal government terminated the grant for the Headstart program in Prince Georges County because of several instances of corporal punishment or humiliation of students by Headstart teachers.

The county executive says he will not ask for their resignations and he has full confidence in their leadership. The chairman of the board of education similarly says he is working on making sure the head start program continues.

Prince George’s County school system faces challenges as classes begin:

This latest development Tuesday took place as students began their first day of classes in Prince George’s County.

At Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School there is excitement about a new school year, a new day, and a fresh start.

A warm greeting for a visiting reporter and Kevin Maxwell, CEO of Prince George’s County Schools in one class. And in teacher Angela Cunningham’s room, a whirring blender, signaling a treat for her young students.

In the hallways, students are reminded how to move in single-file lines as school routines begin anew in Maryland’s second biggest district.

During an exclusive visit to Wood’s Elementary with Dr. Maxwell, he speaks of higher standards and expectations for the New Year.

“Parents will see teachers who are really well trained and really well planned,” Maxwell says.

But in this school which last year was embroiled in allegations of child abuse at the hands of a volunteer teacher’s aide, Maxwell also speaks of the challenges his system faces, including the loss of federal Head Start funding because of teacher misconduct.

“I would remind everyone this represents a tiny number of people in our 20,000 person organization, and it is a shame that a handful of people can make things look so bad for everyone else,” Maxwell says.

Maxwell is promising better from his 10,000 teachers for his 130,000 students.

“Our faculty and staff understand very clearly their responsibility,” Maxwell says.

County Executive Rushern Baker III is a man under siege and presiding a county with major trash problems this year. Rushern Baker III appears to have taken over the entire school District for personal gain and to reward his friends as the rest of the county citizenry suffers under heavy taxation under his regime. Poor leadership on several fronts including interference with the courts and grievances involving employees who made complaints has been clear.
