Chaperones accused of drinking at prom for Prince George’s Co. school; principal placed on leave

img_2822

 – Three administrators, including the principal, at a Prince George’s County high school are on administrative leave while the school looks into allegations that chaperones were drinking during the school’s prom.

Northwestern held its prom on May 18 at a brand new hotel across the street from the University of Maryland.

An emergency staff meeting was held at Northwestern High School in Hyattsville Wednesday afternoon where an announcement was made to staff about the administrators being placed on leave.

According to Prince George’s County Public Schools spokesperson John White, the school system is investigating a claim that school administrators, who should have been sober and chaperoning the event, were instead drinking at the hotel bar.

White confirmed that Northwestern High School principal Carlene Murray was placed on administrative leave along with assistant principals Christopher Burrows and Patricia Duffy.

White said Duffy and Burrows are accused of drinking while Murray was put on leave for her conduct related to the prom. However, she is not accused of drinking at the event.

FOX 5 reached out to all three administrators through email, but have not received a response as of Wednesday evening.

A source familiar with the administration at the school said Burrows and Duffy were placed on leave immediately after the prom and Murray was placed on leave on Monday.

Hyattsville police confirmed a school resource officer went to the hotel after the prom and obtained footage from surveillance cameras.

A teacher at the school, who asked to remain unidentified, was at Wednesday’s emergency meeting at the school. He said he was not at the prom, but the allegations did not surprise him.

“We have lots of evidence with film, witnesses and people who were there, so it is not surprising at all,” he said.

Major Breakfast to dupe parents hosted at TGI Friday’s in Forestville, Maryland

Democratic at-large council candidate Calvin Hawkins (right) and Delegate Mr. Darryl Barnes (left)  Mr. Hawkins is a well known sexual predator and robber who made the county to get sued in Federal court for his sexual misconduct. Mr. Hawkins is also involved in violating rights of other minorities in Prince George’s County. He needs to suspend his campaign and go home. The County residents must demand the withdraw of this candidate for a better future. On the other hand, Delegate Mr. Darryl Barnes activities are controlled by Delegate Dereck Davis, Calvin Hawkins and others to derail the agenda for the county. Both must go home by electing new leaders who mean well for the county.

Following our exposé about Sexual Predator and Convicted Robber Mr. Calvin Hawkins who is running for public office in PG County, a major plan has been organized to bribe key parents and leaders in Prince George’s county for the purposes of facilitating certain key facilities and organizations using unethical means to win fraudulently in 2018 election.

Among the key facilitators are Delegate Darryl Barnes and other delegates running for public office in PG County starting with the Chairman of the delegation Delegate Jay Walker and Delegate Dereck Davis (chairman of economic matters in Maryland).  According to people spoken to by Reform Sasscer Movement Secretariat,  there are plans to facilitate short underhanded methods to stay in power by key delegates involved in public corruption by calling shots from Annapolis. This comes after this blog exposed key players involved in the current fiasco in Prince George’s County.

Earlier this morning, delegate Barnes and others exposed in a wide ranging scheme decided to buy breakfast as part of the wider scheme to facilitated public campaign corruption in Maryland at TGI Friday’s in Forestville and to involve other organization.  Already one person who is familiar with the illegal plans has been threatened by persons associated with Delegate Barnes, Delegate Dereck Davis and Mr. Calvin Hawkins.

This morning breakfast at Forestville comes after Senator Antony Muse accused  Delegate Jay Walker of …..” not letting school board repeal bill out for a vote. This is wrong. This is politics at its worst. Yes all need to join in and put pressure on him from our district and County to return it to an all elected school board as my bill demands”, stated senator Muse.

HB 1107 law was supposed to be revealed this year but it is being blocked in a wide ranging scheme facilitated by key public officials in Maryland to maintain the status quo.   Read more >>Fiasco in the Maryland legislature<<<

In the meantime, Darrell Andre’ Miller whom we exposed in this blog a few months ago as being unfit to run for public office has withdrawn his candidature. This is good news for Prince George’s County and Maryland in general. We recommend Mr. Miller for soul searching and for doing the right thing.

There is no question these issues are so fraught, so weighted with unattended baggage that discussions about the legitimate concerns and frustrations of others and the double-standards and the limits on liberty faced by African Americans, and black males in particular, are never sustained, if not outright avoided.

Yes, we’ll move on from this, too. But we will be better people in a better place because of it.

More to come.

Both interim superintendent Verletta White and former superintendent Dallas Dance worked as consultants to travel twice a year to conferences where they and other school administrators from around the nation would meet privately in three hour sessions with executives of companies that produce education technology for school districts.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Once a rising star in education circles, Former Superintendent Dallas Dance faces perjury charges for failing to report consulting fees in the six figures, and to a lesser degree, Interim Superintendent Verletta White, never reported more modest fees she received on an yearly basis.

State Senator James Brochin (D-Baltimore County) says that double-dipping has to stop.

“She said it was an oversight over four years and each year she was supposed to report outside income, and we may have a legislative fix for that,” said Brochin, “Senator Jennings and I have put a piece of legislation in that we’ve just ordered that said from now on, any superintendent can’t have any outside income. I mean, my goodness, you’re got $259,000 a year, you get a car, you get a housing allowance, you get a credit card to go to lunch and breakfast with people all the time. I mean, ‘Enough!'”

Despite initial resistance by school administrators, Brochin insisted on an audit of some of the spending practices in the Baltimore County Schools system, and questions surround what access companies received due to dance and whites’ outside work.

Brochin says at the heart of the matter is a Chicago-based company called Education Research and Development Institute or ERDI, which offered free flights and easy money to administrators while charging tech companies to give them exclusive access to them.

“You can do a bronze membership for $5,000, a silver member ship for $8,000 or a gold membership for $10,000 and they’re guaranteeing sit downs, and I just thought it was a very unusual way of doing business,” said Brochin, “It didn’t pass the smell test for me.”

State senators will question White over those relationships in Annapolis on Friday raising concerns, which may extend well beyond a failure to report making money on the side.

“I had never seen so many no-bid contracts and the problem and the reason I don’t think we’re finished with this dilemma is some of these no-bid contracts were in direct relationship to the meetings that ERDI facilitated between the technology companies and the former superintendent and the current superintendent,” said Brochin.

House leaders from Baltimore County also plan to question White in two weeks, and they, like their Senate counterparts, are expected to question the school board’s ability or lack of it in providing oversight as the outside work and no-bid contracts unfolded.

Ardra O’Neal involved in criminal undertaking of defrauding employees while working closely with employers in malicious undertaking.

PGCPS system and the Culture of pay to play as a training ground for Many Counties in Maryland and payoff of lawyers to derail proceedings

Board of Education for Prince George’s County has in the last several years engaged in an organized scheme to defraud the public as part of the culture of pay to play working closely with THE O’NEAL LAW FIRM, LLP; THATCHER LAW FIRM; SULLIVAN, TALBOTT & BATT; BRYAN CHAPMAN; RMA & ASSOCIATES, LLC; ROBERT E. CAPPELL; HARDNETT & ASSOCIATES; BRADFORD ASSOCIATES; PESSIN KATZ LAW, P.A.; MARYLAND STATE EDUCATION ASSOCIATION; ASSOCIATION OF SUPERVISORY & ADMINISTRATIVE SCHOOL; MARYLAND STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION; C. SUKARI HARDNETT, LLC and other co-conspirators have engaged in an ongoing willful endeavor to engage in criminal undertaking while defrauding Plaintiffs in a variety of settings which is ongoing both criminal and civil activities throughout Maryland, Washington DC and virginia (DMV).

That, these illegal actions are being coordinated through a number of unethical events in conspiracy with other parties in Maryland, Virginia and in Washington DC and involve public corruption fueled by the Kleptocracy regimes on several levels with epicenter being in Prince George’s County Maryland and Washington DC.

These illegal activities are ongoing in nature as part of racketeering activity organized by the Thatcher Law Firm on behalf of the Board of Education for Prince George’s County after receiving more than $5 million dollars starting during the tenure of Dr. William Hite Jr. These illegal schemes have other participants starting with the Maryland office of the Attorney General, Maryland State Department of Education, Prince George’s County office of the county Executive and the AFSCME International Union et al.

UNION CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

There is a strong coordination starting with former employees of prince George’s county education association (PGCEA)  union. The many former senior officers starting with Christian Rhodes, current director of Labor relations and others in the other unions with ties to Maryland state Education Association (MSEA), have created a conflicts of interests so strong that it’s grounding educational outcomes in the Prince George’s County.

To make the matters worse, the Chairman of the board who is brother in law to County Executive Rushern Baker works for the mother-ship National Education Association (NEA). In this kind of situation, any grievance brought about will certainly will not work due to concealment of the issues. As a result, hundreds of students and staff are impacted.  Many of the senior union officials are simply lining up their pockets as the staff and children in the county suffer real damages.

In addition, besides being the President of PGCEA, Hon. Theresa Mitchell Dudley also serves in the Democratic Central committee for Prince George’s county. Does the later role also create a strong conflict of interest with the county? How does serving the teachers and Democratic Central committee for Prince George’s county serve the interest of teachers?
