UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker III has appointed a new Board of Education chairman.

Baker’s office nominated Dr. Segun Eubanks who was sworn in today Saturday afternoon as the new board chairman under a new state law that takes effect  today (Saturday).  It allows the county executive to choose the county school board chair.Small imagesworn-in-today

Eubanks is director of teacher quality for the National Education Association and is a parent of two Prince George’s students. Eubanks also served as chairman of Baker’s commission on education for the past year. He replaces board chair Verjeana Jacobs.

In a statement, Baker thanked Jacobs for leading the board through difficult times. He says Eubanks brings an expertise in teacher quality and a vested interest in the schools, as a parent.

Union corruption in PGCPS has been the biggest issue beside the Board membership. If he can fix the union problems and a few things identified in our blogs, everything else will work wonders. (See our Top priorities here).  As a movement, we wish him well in the new assignment.

Four appointees will join nine elected school board members.
