In what is turning out to be a comedy of errors, Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) CEO Dr. Monica Goldson has finally withdrawn an illegal procedure she enacted without consulting the community or Board members. This deliberate blunder led to an outcry in the community of Whitehall and surrounding areas. Goldson who has surrounded herself with sycophants lately in order to enact a systematic scheme, is causing untold worry in the community. There is clear evidence of personnel known to each other who are out to abuse power. They are running the entire school system under a cloud of corruption. These violations of law which have been willful in nature were reported years ago. Furthermore, CEO Goldson herself has an active case within the United States legal frame work and others are pending, a clear piece of evidence which furthers the scale of public corruption which is ongoing concern.
Local Board of Education member for the area Ms Raaheela Ahmed on Tuesday was quoted in part as stating the following “…But in my opinion, this item is not an FYI. For an item like this, input needs to come from the community BEFORE a proposal is made. Housing audits should be complete BEFORE a boundary change is confirmed to present. Proposals need to be complete, sensible, accurate, and stand up to questioning. Central office needs to listen and ACT when the PTA has reviewed the proposal and expressed concern over it days before it came to the community as a whole. That’s not what happened here, and that’s the problem,” she added. We previously covered the story here.

BOWIE, Md. — The CEO of Prince George’s County Public Schools changed course Tuesday after parents fought back against the proposed re-zoning of Whitehall Elementary.
The district had proposed shifting more than 200 students to four other nearby schools in 2020 to solve the long-standing overcrowding problem at Whitehall.
After multiple parents complained, the CEO announced Tuesday that she would be withdrawing the proposal at Thursday’s school board meeting in favor of creating a task force.
“My son would have ended up going from one of the best performing schools in Prince George’s County to one of the worst, and my wife and I were not going to do that,” said RiShawn Biddle, the father of a kindergartner who just started at Whitehall.
In his mind, Whitehall is the best and Northview is the worst.
“The way that they rolled out this proposal is just in poor taste,” Emebet Booker, parent of three, said. “People made a big investment. I mean, we’re paying a premium to live in the school zone that we’re in.”
Booker has children in fourth and first grade at Whitehall, and one in pre-school. She said if the changes would have gone through, she would have had to take her kids to three different schools.
