There has been roughly 200 students and faculty members who may have been exposed to Tuberculosis, at Bladensburg High School, according to the Prince George’s County Health Department. The undisputed facts about the Bladensburg High School fiasco involving Tuberculosis cover ups reveal conduct utterly incompatible with the CEO’s constitutional duty. Notwithstanding her desperate efforts to cast aspersions on the credibility and loyalty of the whistle-blowers and the many staff members and other officials who conveyed their firsthand knowledge and profound concerns at the Bladensburg High School in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS).
It’s telling that neither CEO Dr. Monica Goldson nor anyone else seriously questions the truth of the whistle-blower’s account of the cover up at PGCPS High School here. That officials knew about the problems many days ago and chose to be silent in face of danger to everyone in this particular school. This is clearly a concern and confirms the leadership is out of line and the CEO needs to resign based on this issue and others.
It’s important to stress, however, that even without these surrounding circumstances (or even if some of them depend on contested facts), what’s within the four corners of the PGCPS headquarters at Sasscer Administrative Building in Upper Marlboro account of the Bladensburg High School Tuberculosis fiasco, standing alone, reflects a gross abuse of office.
It’s now up to all members of the Board of Education for Prince George’s County —whether or not they vote to remove CEO Dr. Goldson and the Chairman Dr. Alvin Thornton. In order to prevent more problems from occurring in the county, and to rewrite the proper standards of the new CEO while drumming up support to reveal HB1107, which gave the CEO absolute power like a monarch, members of the Board of Education need to vote to remove her. They must drum up support to have the Chairman removed as well. This is the only way to prevent a fox from guarding a chicken house in PGCPS.
As stated previously in this blog, Dr. Monica Goldson current CEO for Prince George’s County advanced corruption for years in this county! Since the exposure of her illegal activities, Goldson has since scheduled meetings where she only takes notes, she did not respond to the concerns expressed by employees, parents and others in these meetings recently. They say it was a listening session. #DespotsMustFall

BLADENSBURG, Md. (FOX 5 DC) – In Prince George’s County, Bladensburg High School is reporting a case of tuberculosis. School officials partnered with the county health department to hold an informational meeting tonight with parents.
School officials say over the weekend, Bladensburg High School was thoroughly cleaned out of an abundance of caution.
Letters and robocalls went out Tuesday to parents, but some were concerned that the school knew about the tuberculosis case for more than a week. The school confirms it was notified on October 24.
Officials will not say whether it’s a student or staff member who is sick, but there are 200 people identified as potentially exposed after having close contact with the patient.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, tuberculosis or TB can be deadly if not treated properly. It’s spread through the air from one person to another. When a sick person coughs, tiny droplets can remain floating in the area for several hours. An infected person won’t test positive until 8 to 10 weeks after exposure.
Officials plan to send letters to those 200 families to notify them over the next two weeks and free testing will be held the first week of December. Treatment will be free for anyone who tests positive.
