Maxwell's Minions at It

http://www.fox5dc.com/news/local-new...d-with-assault


What a joke. First, giving this Slackwell $800,000 for running the system into the ground, then this assault. I don't know if the Chairman of the Board is elected or appointed, but what does this say for the ones who are supposed to be leaders?

I just retired from this disaster they call a school system. don't know if I should laugh or cry.

Considering that Baker is still in charge of the county (and the school board), I suspect this will be swept under the rug.

In other news...

The Missus has her 50... look out gang!!

Not for opening at work or with school age children present. They quote exactly what the creep said.

Found this by hunting for articles. The only news outlet having it was the one from Fox 5 out of DC.

Yeah - we all saw that.

FWIW, Dr. Goldson is well respected in the Office of General Counsel.

I am retired from PGCPS, I also attended and graduated from the system and still live in the county. I knew Kevin Maxwell when he was a principal at Northwestern, before leaving to run AA County. I also watched Mr. Burroughs join the school board as a student from Crossland High School. While I think Mr. Burroughs at age 26 has his heart in the right place, he doesn't have a clue about real world problems and what it is like to run a large public school system comprised of over 80% minorities, coming from single parent homes in high poverty neighborhoods. Add to this federal testing mandates that do not work and it becomes difficult to say the least. Look at the system's track record with superintendents and board members since Glendening left the county for Annapolis. Not much progress no matter how much money thrown at the problem. When Baker took over the system he knew the issues and went out and recruited Maxwell. Except for the pay raise claims, ALL the other problems that plagued Maxwell's term existed for years before he got there. Problems like the graduation percentages and test scores will continue to exist if only in a more clandestine manner because the real solution would lie with parents of these students taking responsibility for their children and the work habits. So the young Board member that has no clue gets to take down the evil old Maxwell. Maybe when Burroughs graduates from College with a degree in "Spanish" he can run the system...I'm sure he has all the answers.
