Prince George’s Schools & Dr. Hite Sued By Principals.

The Prince George’s County Public Schools system is facing a lawsuit from the union that represents the schools’ principals and administrators. According to the published article by NBC News, The Association of Supervisory and Administrative School Personnel, or ASASP, filed a $100 million federal class action suit against the schools and Dr. William Hite Jr  on November 2, 2012.

The Complaint centers a lot on Dr. William Hite Jr who alone replaced almost half of the principals in the Prince George’s County Public schools (PGCPS) (Read More)

Update:Ms. Shilling went to Jail on Sept. 7, 2012.

Ms. Synthia Shilling aka Kucner the former Chief Human Resources Officer reported to Anne Arundel County Detention Center on September 7, 2012 and served time for her bad behavior.  Ms. Shilling who pled guilty for driving under the influence, will spent the rest her 58 days of suspended jail time at home. She also faces one (1) year probation.  Ms. Shilling who has had a history of other offenses dating back to 1980’s cried like a baby in the court room on August 27, 2012. In order to get a lesser sentence, she told the judge about her father who passed away a week earlier. But the Maryland judge did not want to hear it because she has had four drunk driving records.  As we have said before, the legal department led by Mr. Roger Thomas and previously deputized by Synthia Shilling is truly the epic center for corruption in the whole of PGCPS.   Stay tuned here, we will bring you more updates as the story develops.

(Read more) concerning  Dr. William Hite who resigned this summer and who nominated previous chief and others who tried to destroy our school system for their own selfish motives.  Without mentioning names  “these fake and hypocritical reformists who use empty rhetoric to woo votes but do not care about the true taste of our county school system must be rejected on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 election. It’s time!

Statement regarding the appointment of Dr. Alvin Crawley.

Dr. Alvin Crawley (picture above) will serve as Interim Superintendent of Prince George’s County Public Schools for the 2012-13 school year.

Reform Sasscer Movement welcomes the appointment of a new leader – Dr. Alvin Crawley on temporary basis as the superintendent of schools. He seems like a decent man, so we plan to give him a chance for as long as he sustains the transparency and accountability reform agenda.   However,  we must denounce those in the system loudly shouting about their tainted reform credentials. Many of them starting with some Board of Education (BOE) members have neither censured nor condemned acts of hooliganism and lawlessness as demonstrated by Synthia Shilling, Monica Goldson, Roger Thomas and William Hite Jr.

As a movement, we must reject the appointment of Ms. Monica Goldson as a Chief Operating Officer (COO).  This is a decoy which resembles siphoning of  gas out of  our fuel tanks and it’s not going to work.  In the last five years, she has been the woman behind unpopular policies of the corrupt Superintendent Dr. William Hite Jr.  Her actions, whether deliberate or not,  led to her divorce proceedings in 2009 which have now become final. Please read between the lines and connect the dots.  Ms. Monica Goldson should not be allowed to  pass judgment over any staff when she was a failure as a principal. She has low moral standards is very nasty and should go with Synthia Shilling, Dr. Hite and the rest of the corrupted people. PGCEA and other unions needs to help force out all the high-ranking administrators  bringing down the system.  The other person who should be rejected and shown the door as quickly as possible is Chief legal Counsel Mr. Roger Thomas who has been on that position for close to 20 years now. During his tenure, we have seen corruption increase under his watch and he was the person behind hiring of Synthia Shilling aka Kucner (pictured below). He was also the force behind Andre Hornsby saga, who was convicted on July 23, 2008, of honest services wire fraud, witness and evidence tampering and obstruction of justice among other issues by the FBI. (Read more).

Beer and liquor consumption at Sasscer administrative building was another issue which led to Synthia shilling losing her job. We demand the resignation of Monica Goldson for the benefit of staff, students and parents of Prince George’s county. The time has come to move forward firmly and in the right direction. There is clearly a light at the end of the tunnel.

Without mentioning names we must say that “these fake and hypocritical reformists who use empty rhetoric to woo votes but do not care about the true taste of our county school system must be rejected on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 election. They drink wine but preach water. ” said Morris Flecher Beyene.  Just look at the bathrooms in many of these schools which are poorly cleaned? If we expect a world-class school system, we must be prepared for sacrifices.

In any case, we must say that we are very excited about the effects of our blogs. We have precipitated “tectonic shifts and volcanic eruptions” and now many PG Citizens are asking the way forward after the revelations interpreted by political commentators as might a considerable impact on the Board of Education candidature of the current Board.

“It is our wish that we focus our attention as a people and as a county on the illusive but yet incomplete liberation struggle for our county system in the next year! The struggle involves liberation from unemployment, intolerance, exploitation, inequalities, corruption, racism, discrimination, professional misconduct and nepotism”.

As a movement, we are calling on voters to retire unnamed “political dinosaurs” and “merchants of impunity” who are still trying to cling to power.  Abuse of office, corruption, political trickery, and public deception orchestrated or covered up in William Hite’s office must be cleaned once and for all.

We have the necessary proof of poor leadership and “deception, duplicity, and hypocrisy” in the William Hite’s camp

This county requires a leader with the ability and will power not only to unite the people but roll out sound development agenda and rid the society of socio-economic problems it is currently faced with.

Above all, a new leader must get a clean break from the crisis which has become the “Maryland scandal” and is morally dead because of the actors involved. Dr. William Hite, Synthia Shilling, Pierre Dickson, etc. are on the run!

Synthia Shilling aka Kucner will be reporting to Anne Arundel County  Detention Center on September 7, 2012 to serve time for her bad behavior. The rest of 58 days of suspended jail time will be spent at home. She also faces one (1) year probation. She cried like a baby in the court room on August 27, 2012 when she told the judge her father passed away last week. But the tough Maryland judge did not want to hear it because she has had four drunk driving records.  Stay tuned here, we will bring you updates as time goes.

This is such an embarrassment for PG County. We have a history of hiring individuals that no one else wants to hire, and the results are devastating. Case in point: Andre Hornsby (currently serving time in prison),  County Executive Jack Jackson (also serving time in prison) and a host of other leaders who are only interested in furthering their own careers rather than the education and well-being of our students and county residents. We are disgusted for sure. It’s time to say “No” to these shenanigans and a shame the devil! No one should rest easy until the bad leadership is off the door…. Call your elected officials now and demand a regime change for the few elements connected to Dr. William Hite Jr. It’s time….

Reform Sasscer response regarding Synthia Shilling.

This election year, we’ve used the power of grassroots organizing to shape the Prince George’s County debate and make sure voters know that change is needed in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) board of Education.  Above all, Reform Sasscer Movement needs to see anyone tied to corruption and in bed with the outgoing  superintendent Dr. William Hite jr. shown the door!  The list starts with previous High School Consortium Director and now Chief Operating Officer aka Ms. Monica Goldson.

The board in charge of Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) — is dysfunctional, out of control and secretive,  Reform Sasscer Movement contend. They have not addressed publicly the serious issues surrounding the chief Human Resources officer Ms. Synthia J. Shilling in particular and her relationship with Dr. William Hite Jr as well as Monica Goldson among others. “The danger is that the fish rots from the head, and if we don’t get the board of education restored to harmony and effectiveness,  it will be extremely difficult to sustain that excellence in the staff this coming year.” said a concerned parent recently. “We truly want to see the board returned to honesty and integrity.” said one elected official. “We have a system that went off the tracks and things must be changed” She added. That’s why we have to stop them in their tracks by exposing how their policies would affect thousands of students, staff and their families if elected again  and then left unchecked.  We’re organizing “Pink Slip” flyering actions toward this November 2012 election where we’ll hand out Ms. Verjeana Jacobs pink slips to make sure voters and the media tell the truth about the Verjeana Jacobs corruption within the Board of Education and her shenanigans.

The following issues remain in the minds of many concerned citizens of Prince George’s County regarding events surrounding Synthia Shilling and Dr. William Hite Jr. should answer them before he starts his poisoned chalice in Philly.

A.) Dr. William Hite has not condemned Ms. Synthia J. Shilling and others who drunk beer during Business hours at Sasscer adminstrative building and harassed employees in Prince George’s County Schools, thereby openly encouraging senior staff and some BOE members to harass employees. A responsible leader who upholds the rule of law would have quickly condemned those barbaric acts and distanced himself from them. By not doing so, Dr William Hite has now fully associated himself with such acts;

B.) He has not responded to the allegations in the blogs, which are serious and go to the heart of his ability or lack thereof, to lead. The county and the world is still waiting.

C.) By authorising BOE Chairperson Verjeana JacobsChief Legal Counsel Roger Thomas Chief Human Resources Officer Ms. Synthia Shilling and Roslyn Hawkins to attempt to assassinate character of employees by hurling abuse and attempting pseudo and fake psychological analysis on staff rather than dealing with the contents and substance of our information in our blogs, Dr. William Hite has demonstrated the numerous weaknesses and failures catalogued in our blogs.

D.) If or when Thatcher Law firm and others commence retaliation action against Reform Sasscer Movement members, as far as we are concerned, that would be Dr. William Hite Jr doing it. Thacther Law firm is not just Dr. William Hite’s Private lawyers (and money bags and silent nominee in various ventures), the firm is also a self-styled ‘Chief of Staff’. Everything written about Thatcher law firm in the blogs revolves around what the firm did after Dr. William Hite was appointed superintendent of schools and Thatcher law firm started working at Sasscer administrative building. Consequently, as far as we are concerned, in all intents and purposes, Dr. William Hite Jr is Thacher law firm and Thatcher law firm is Dr. William Hite as far as we are concerned.

E.) Some of the issues which concerns most parents, staff, students and lawmakers of which Dr. William Hite Jr never shown interest except cover up are: weak oversight, lax ethics, conflicts of interest, no-bid contracts, a lack of transparency. They “I have serious questions about how the board has conducted itself,” Susan said Friday. “I want the people of the PG County area to know that we don’t agree with what they’ve been doing and students suffer after all.” she added.

F.) The board must address the long list of potential improprieties identified. We plan on going on a County wide Tour to engage PG Citizens one on one  on the most burning issues of the day: unemployment, racism, malfeasance in public office, specifically grand corruption (especially of state and public officers), nepotism and the reemergence of intolerance in PGCPS.  As a county, we must ensure that the Constitution is adhered to in letter and spirit by everyone – leaders and ordinary citizens alike!

G.) Dr. William Hite Jr must be forced to answer all improprieties identified and pay back the money misused on personal issues.  Tax payers must not be left holding the bags. (See the entire list here).

G.) And finally, Briant Coleman’s opinion comment published in the electronic version of  the Washington post newspaper recently cannot be taken to be Dr. William Hite’s. Briant Coleman is NOT Dr. William Hite’s spokesperson; he is supposed to be a ‘a spokes person for the school system’. PG County system has not given Briant Coleman any legal and constitutional authority to act as the superintendent of schools. The op-ed piece is Briant Coleman’s opinion. Therefore, as far as we can see, Dr. William Hite has not spoken on about Ms. Synthia Shilling’s tribulations at all. Subterfuge will not do. This is not what is expected of a Superintendent who wants us to compare him to modern leaders in the first world. He has failed in action and practice.

Good riddance to Dr.William Hite Jr.

Dr. William Hite Jr (pictured above) is a pathological liar, there’s no doubt about that. He is also a cover-up artist. If the court reports in Greenbelt Federal courts are correct in its summary of the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) corruption and sexual exploitation of children scandal, the public Dr. William Hite Jr of the last few years is a work of fiction. In his place is a hubristic, indictable hypocrite. He should not be a Superintendent of schools anywhere!

According to concerned citizens of Prince George’s County, we must abolish entire PGCPS leadership led by Dr. Hite and Ms. Verjeana Jacobs in the wake of findings by the federal judge that Scott Smallwood, of Upper Marlboro and an employee of PGCPS hid his crimes of being a child rapist.  The three-hour sentencing hearing on Wednesday July 18, 2012 involved home movies of sexual acts, trembling verbal testimonies from distraught family members and an exhibit of a homemade doll that resembled an anatomically correct adolescent boy Smallwood used in what U.S. District Court Judge Roger W. Titus called his own “fantasy world.” (Read more) “This is a very sad day especially since this happened again not too long ago in Bowie High School in which students were forced in prostitution by athletic coaches”, said a concerned PG parent. Another incident involving student sexual exploitation happened in Flowers High school as well under the leadership of Dr. William Hite Jr.  We need to put a stop to Board of Education’s shenanigans. We have finally reached the tipping point for sure and we have had enough. Enough is enough with cover up and appointing select few who are politically connected like Ms. Monica Goldson as Chief Operating Officer (COO) in order to continue the status quo.

We have said over and over again that, The PGCPS leadership lacks vision, and they continue to bend to parents who lack the insight to recognize that their failure to have control over the student body and place the right staff in the right place has led to an environment in which few are educated but all get diplomas at the end of the school year. Thus very few college graduates emerge from this school district that has many students taking the AP exam but keeps no records on those passing the AP exam. This year for example Central High School had students photographing AP exams and posting the pages on the internet because students are used to using their cell phones while in class and the school staff is powerless to stop it. There is no doubt  Dr. Hite is an outstanding education reform propagandist. Unfortunately there is no substance underneath the propaganda. The Prince George’s County public school district has seriously deteriorated under his leadership which was certainly hampered by a know nothing and do nothing school board again led by one Ms. Verjeana Jacobs.

Therefore, it is disturbing that our members of the Board of Education recently spent untold hours debating who should be included in Executive Session in an apparent battle over whether our student Board member should be included to hear set of facts involving Adult matters.

That’s really not the issue. We want our curricula to be based on sound, empirical data and grounded in common sense. Unfortunately, the best interests of our students and our county have taken a back seat to the promotion of an ideological agenda focused on Board of Education chairperson’s rival in November 2012 election.

Do we need to have public input regarding curricula coming out of the PGCPS Education Agency? Certainly. But the actions of the PGCPS BOE provide more of a distraction than meaningful oversight of our public education system.

If Dr. William Hite knew about corruption, nepotism, professional misconduct  and sexual exploitation of children scandal within the system and refused to do something about it, then he isn’t and wasn’t some aging granddad who was deceived, but a canny and unfeeling power broker who put protecting his reputation ahead of protecting children and staff. There is no question he engaged in a cover-up, “an active agreement of concealment in collaboration with Chief legal counsel Mr. Roger Thomas and others within and outside PGCPS.”

The only explanation we can find for this “striking lack of empathy” is self-absorption. In asking how a paragon of virtue could have behaved like such a thoroughly bad guy, the only available answer is that Dr. William Hite Jr. is no different from Paterno who fell prey to the single most corrosive sin in sports: the belief that winning on the field makes you better and more important than other people.

We can’t afford to continue applying Band-Aids, hoping for a cure. At the very least, we should depoliticize our county  board by taking partisan politics out of the mix. The last resort would be to abolish the board altogether.

The best solution, we suspect, lies somewhere in between. We  look forward to working with  legislators and community leaders to address the problems. The fates of our students and our future — even our history — demands it.

As Dr. William Hite Jr. prepares to jump off ship to Philly, it’s a good riddance for sure!

Faith Jackson – (Harvard Bound) shows leadership.

Student Board Member Faith Jackson (Pictured above)

A very interesting BOE meeting took place on June 28, 2012 in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS). The day began with Student Board member Faith Jackson expressing her frustration with education in PGCPS District and the corruption within the system. Faith Jackson’s speech is within the first half hour of this video. So please take a closer look. ~~> BOE Video.

For those who do not know Faith Jackson, She is a Charles H. Flowers High School (Mecca of Excellence) graduate who is Harvard-bound. Before choosing Harvard, Faith Jackson worked very hard under difficult circumstances while balancing many things such as, being the voice of thousands of students in BOE,extra curricular activities and the academics. At the end of the academic year, She had to choose between Harvard,Yale & Princeton universities among others. Finally,she choose Harvard University. In addition, Faith who was Charles H. Flowers High School Valedictorian for 2012 graduation class also participated in Soccer and swim teams in PGCPS. She will be remembered for many things among them, showing great courage while under pressure from some of her colleagues in the board. By the time of going to the press, she was under threat of retaliation for making the above speech. The BOE has been undergoing transformation under a watchful active citizenry both from within PG county and around the world. See top priority list here ~~> PGCPS priority for incoming BOE

We have a real serious problem in this county because we have intelligent, involved students such as Ms. Jackson who want to do more to solve some of the issues within this system but they are often shuned off because of bad leadership within the school District, but then you have ignorant individuals who don’t do the research, who do not care about the students or the staff, who are basically ignoring everything, and too ignorant to know that the individuals they have elected some are too incompetent to ever make this school system as good as it could be. The Board Chairperson, Dr. William Hite Jr and chief legal counsel are the epicenter of the corruption in PGCPS. They are in turn supported by close collaborators whose mission is to cover up. Read more. We honestly wouldn’t be surprised if years from now, Ms. Jackson is one of those individuals who refuses to affiliate herself with this sorry excuse for a school system. Corruption is very bad cancer and we must say “No” to it at the first sight. Just look at what happened to former county executive Mr. Jack Johnson and his wife Leslie Johnson. Another example is former superintendent Andre J. Hornsby

What was so interesting about the majority of the meeting is that you see the video profiling Jackson, including her description about how she had to learn to work with the system after coming in expecting to change so much. Then you see the comment from the principal speaking to Jackson’s need to “temper her passion.” Following the profile, you hear Jackson, and young lady is ticked! LOL. We don’t blame her. Damn, we could relate, in dealing with the system many of us in the movement. At the end, when you hear the public comments, you can see the story unfolding, and know why Ms.Jackson finally had enough. She has had enough with them and now it was time to fight the corruption heads on. Dr. Hite who was sitting nearby did not acknowledge her after her speech.

Many people in PG County are not involved with the school system the way they should be doing. It’s sad, but what’s even more sad is that, most parents don’t even show up to PTA meetings to hold these individuals accountable. Not just because we got a bunch of minorities working in the schools, many of these parents assume these people really care about their kids. We applaud Ms. Faith Jackson for her courage to speak up about these issues. It took real temerity to go up in front of the Board and the Superintendent of schools to say what she said. She is already off to a great start because she has already figured things out at the age of 18 what grown adults have not figured out in decades of living here. Reform Sasscer movement is very proud of her achievements and wishes her success in every way possible and in her future endeavors. She is a great leader!

“We must always remember that, leadership can show up anywhere and at anytime.” said one parent recently after watching the above video. Faith is very honest and shown great candor in dealing with the current Board. She clearly demonstrated all is possible and set high standards too. The fact is that, this young lady is very brave beyond her years. History will judge her well and she has made a permanent mark in the PGCPS history books as we move forward. In the meantime, corrupt leadership starting with Dr. William Hite and others are starting to jump off ship one by one…. It’s time!

Misfortune follows incompetent previous IT director.

 Tough luck follows incompetency after former bully director is fired again.Here again poor fellow Mr. Pierre Dickson (pictured above) has been fired again this time from a contractor position affiliated with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). We received reports that he was attempting to harass the moon on his way to mars.  Anyway, on a more serious note, it is hard for an old dog to learn new tricks.  Mr. Dickson has made an incomprehensible amount of mistakes over the past few years and does not do justice to how much hurt he has put his family through. He abandoned his family from their LaPlata home and they got uprooted  after he failed to pay the mortgage. It’s a shame the fellow continues to see his old flame Ms. Shanita Anderson clandestinely. (See Mr. Dickson’s divorce papers here) and his response to the divorce complaint here ~~>Pierre Dickson divorce papers. In his answer to the complaint, Mr. Dickson acknowledges almost all the allegations his wife makes. However, he is also seeking divorce on grounds of voluntary separation. The man has no loyalty to anybody including his wife who beared him two kids.

As we have said before, Mr. Pierre Dickson is a one trick pony with a signature theme song of incompetency and harassment. What is the next port of call? Night club bouncer? Since he loves women so much. Maybe a security guard at a Go-go club? We think not. Too many women involved again. This begs the question how did this man land a job in Prince George’s County public schools ( PGCPS) with influence over our children and the staff? Whoever hired this man in PGCPS Human Resources should be fired immediately, unless he or she is already fired. In that case, then it will be good riddance to bad trash. In the future for the sake of our kids, we need to ensure those who hire bad apples to be in contact with our children and the staff are held accountable.

There will come a time in every man’s life when things don’t go his way. This is the reality of life, and we are here to tell that it’s both juvenile and stupid to think that you will always be right or that you will always find yourself on the winning end. You won’t, so deal with it Mr. Dickson. Occasionally the only choice you have is to be a man and face the music, much like Dr. William R. Hite Jr is dealing with it. Nothing yanks our chains more than some punk who can’t accept the fact that he’s not infallible. A real man is one who can face up to his mistakes and learn something from them so that he never repeats them. So, unless you are the pope, Mr. Dickson listen up, because this is important. A faithful reader recently asked an age-old question: When is it OK to admit you’re wrong? Although this question has puzzled men for centuries, the answer is quite simple: when you’re wrong.  We know many of yous are probably thinking, “Isn’t admitting defeat a bit like quitting?” The answer to this question is no. In fact, it couldn’t be further from quitting. Allow me to elaborate. We belive we can learn as much from ‘fallen’ leaders and their failures as we can from those who have not made them. Samson is a good example in Scripture. Samson was a ruler of Israel for 20 years. He had everything going for him – supernatural strength, good looks, and a divine anointing to lead God’s people. And yet, in spite of all that, he blew it. He wasted his life and brought all kinds of troubles on himself. He became his own worst enemy.
Samson’s life is told in the book of Judges. Chapters 14-16 tell of his supernatural conception, his Nazirite consecration, his exploits as a Judge of Israel and his fall from grace. Even though he lived so long ago, his story typifies three of the most common ways we bring trouble on ourselves. If we identify these traps, with God’s help, we can not only make sense of the mess Mr. Dickson and others in PGCPS may be in right now, but we can also find a way out. “Samson went down to Timnah and saw there a young Philistine woman… (Judges 14:1) “One day Samson went to Gaza, where he saw a prostitute.” (Judges 16:1)

Samson had two big weaknesses in his life. He never learned to control either of them. What were they? Samson lacked self-control over his temper and his lust. All his life they plagued him and eventually led to his downfall. There is no difference in what Mr. Pierre Dickson, Dr. Hite etc. did to others in PGCPS in relation to Samson.

Samson had a weakness of uncontrolled physical desire. Though physically strong, he was morally weak. For him it was really kind of game: “How close to the fire can I get and not get burned? How close to the edge of the cliff can I get and not fall off?” Samson deliberately ignored God’s moral principles, particularly in the area of physical desires. Having taken a vow to avoid drinking wine, he should never have been hanging around a place like Timnah, renowned for its vineyards (Judges 14:5). Had he avoided the place he would never have been attracted to marry someone who was his enemy. The first step toward sin is being in the wrong place. We must be careful where we go.

PGCPS Board of Education, please take note we are watching who you chose to replace this pathetic excuse of candidates. We demand and deserve better this time. There ought to be a proper nationwide search of credible candidates, without cutting corners. Better rules needs to be established to create checks and balances within the county’s system. There must be accountability and transparency involving the county superintendent in the future regime.  We have had enough. Enough is enough.
