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 to serve time for her bad behavior.  Ms. Shilling who pled guilty for driving under the influence,  spent 3 days and 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 offences 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.

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.

PGCPS HR Chief Resigns in Disgrace.

(Synthia Shilling pictured above arguing with her husband Mr. Kucner)

By an act of God, Synthia J. Shilling who developed  “evil juju sprits and bad karma” after she fired hundreds of employees without cause or under drummed up charges will not be a Human Resources Chief Officer for Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) anymore.  This is because of  immorality, misconduct in office, incompetency, gross insubordination, willful neglect of duty, or being convicted or found guilty of drunk driving hit and run fiasco in Anne Arundel County in May 2012. This should be a lesson to all the bad people out there who only care about themselves while endangering the lives of others.  Many thanks to the Anne Arundel County Police Department for the arrest and prosecution.  Already our priority list drawn by Reform Sasscer movement to address major needs within the county system is taking a life of its own with Dr. William Hite Jr jumping off ship before the new elected Board even takes office in December 2012.

Synthia J. Shilling aka Synthia J. Kucner, Human Resources Chief Officer for Prince George’s County school system (PGCPS) gave notice of her intent to resign to outgoing Superintendent William Hite on August 1, 2012. Hite knew she had already caught a charge when he hired her and had a virtually unflagging obligation to intervene but failed to protect the PGCPS students, staff and the Community. According to the Washington Post, Shilling was pulled over by Maryland State trooper four years ago for a traffic stop. Shilling was given probation before judgment and fined more than $400 for second-degree assault on a Maryland state trooper at that time. According to police reports, Shilling kicked the state trooper in the face and bloodied his lips after a 2008 traffic stop in Anne Arundel County. She also received probation before judgment for driving while impaired at the time of the incident. Here is the rundown of the incident: A PGCPSMESS for sure! While the state trooper placed Ms. Kucner in the police car, she “pulled her right leg up with her knee near her chest and then kicked, striking the left side of my face” the state trooper wrote.  “The heel of her foot made contact with my upper and lower lip causing both of them to split.” Kucner’s blood alcohol level was 0.16, or twice the legal limit, six hours later at the detention center, according to the report. All the above information come from the Washington Post article, not us. (Read more). What we will say is that it sounds like this one CLEARLY is a drunk, an angry drunk who likes to pee on herself.  We are pretty sure most of us would not end up on probation after assaulting a state trooper as well as being left in a $172K job. Is the talent pool in HR so bereft of people that this was the best PGCPS could do? According to the police report, Ms. Synthia Kucner Aka Shilling started to cry after she was caught making false reports by the police. (See entire police report here~~> Synthia Shilling Kucner Drunk HR Chief). We tried to block the private personal information in the report.

Synthia J. Shilling, is currently scheduled to go to trial Aug. 27 2012 in Anne Arundel County District Court for allegedly leaving the scene of an accident, according to court documents. She is charged with the following six (6) incidents;

  1. FAILURE OF VEH. DRIVER TO STOP AFTER UNATTENDED PROPERTY DAMAGE ACCIDENT.
  2. FAILURE OF VEH. DRIVER IN ACCIDENT TO LOCATE AND NOTIFY OWNER OF UNATTENDED PROPERTY DAMAGE.
  3. FAILURE MOTOR VEH. DRIVER TO FURNISH WRITTEN I.D. INFO. IN UNATTENDED DAMAGED PROPERTY.
  4. NEGLIGENT DRIVING VEHICLE IN CARELESS AND IMPRUDENT MANNER ENDANGERING PROPERTY, LIFE AND PERSON.
  5. RECKLESS DRIVING VEHICLE IN WANTON AND WILLFUL DISREGARD FOR SAFETY OF PERSONS AND PROPERTY.
  6. DIRECTING AND PERMITTING HWY. VEH. OPERATION CONTRARY TO LAW.

Witnesses on the scene of the accident identified Ms. Synthia J. Shilling aka Synthia J. Kucner  as the driver of a white Chrysler Town and Country minivan bearing Maryland registration which had earlier struck a sign at a high speed while she was on drugs. According to police, “I also immediately detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath and person” wrote the police officer.

What’s done in the dark always comes to light. There are so many chiefs and not enough Indians. You’re so fine you blow your own minds. The cutest thing we have ever seen is a baby’s but with cellulite. The saddest thing we have ever read always comes from this county. Prince George’s county (professional gangsters) at your service. “You have to love PG in general. We are a county full of criminals and thugs who elect and appoint criminals, thugs, racists and the inept”, Said one concerned parent in Prince George’s County recently.

All we can say is that, we are glad all these things are coming out in the open slowly but surely in PGCPS right now. It’s very sad to be subject to this capricious system of corruption with a mix of alcohol consumption during the day! In the meantime, everyone is ignoring the elephant in the room, which is the poor behavior and attitudes of too many senior staff members (especially at the Sasscer Administrative building some of whom are close relatives of senior staff), which negatively affecting the achievement of the students in the whole school system.

“Out of control corruption, nepotism and professional misconduct by senior PGCPS staff led by superintendent William Hite who cannot decide priorities combined with an avalanche of misleading rhetoric statements by current PGCPS leadership and violation of various statutes has stifled school system business to the point where improvements, proper investment and proper hiring practices have all but disappeared. We need help from all our elected officials, law enforcement community etc to use their real world experience to free up the hard-working people of Prince George’s County from the implemented barriers that have stalled our educational recovery. Clearly, it’s time to make a change.”

We find it amazing that a superintendent William Hite whose district was fined over five million dollars for being a “willful violator” of our labor laws is going to become the head of Philadelphia School System. As he goes, one of his top administrators is going on trial for committing criminal acts and another is facing a divorce for infidelity during business hours. The children of Prince Gorge’s County are not doing well academically. Looking at its educational leaders we can see why the students are failing. This is what we have been saying all along while calling for reforms, innovation and transformations in PGCPS.  Hopefully God will help the students in Philadelphia. They need a moral leader to run their schools and they are getting a man who is running from a troubled situation, from a system that seems to be morally dead. Good luck!

Philadelphia better take note because William Hite Jr. is coming over and is their problem right now. It’s time!
