Prince George’s County Must say “No” to “Quid Pro Quo” And Goldson Must Resign

64927818_10219293841847575_9204888821190098944_n

Past reports concerning union corruption have pointed out that “it is all too easy for racketeers to control and exploit, in part because there is no effective mechanism for policing internal union affairs. The nomination of Dr. Monica Goldson (seen on the podium second from right) was a major conflict of interest after quid pro quo involving Dr. Charlene Dukes. When we glorify impunity at the expense of integrity, a nation’s socio- fabric erodes.

Largo, (Reform Sasscer) – Prince George’s County citizens continue to confront major hurdles in its struggle against deep-rooted, longstanding corruption with ties to quid pro quo.  Many of the bills, including the famous Kirwan Commission, appear to center on “Quid Pro Quo” due to the past illegal activities with ties to Dr. Monica Goldson and her minions.  We must continue to Say “No” to these “self dealing bills” including the famous Kirwan Commission fronted by the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Chairman Dr. Alvin Thornton.

Dr. Alvin Thornton’s rapid ascend to power is heavily conflicted due to the union corruption. Monica Goldson makes it hard to invest in equal education for our kids by willful misconduct, money laundering, discrimination, inter alia. It should matter how much money your parents make, or what kind of mortgage they can afford in order to have a high quality education in a safe, clean school after corrupt officials have been removed.

In addition, we must advocate to change the HB1107 law to have an all elected Board due to all the misconduct going on with the current PGCPS CEO, Dr. Monica Goldson. These politicians with ties to each other are more concerned with the optics of #PrinceGeorge’sProud than just addressing the issues. You address the issues and everything else falls into place.

Quid pro quo is a Latin phrase that literally means “something for something,” or “this for that.” We use the phrase to signify an exchange of goods, services, favors, or any other kind of value. When we’re talking about multiple exchanges, we can say quid pro quos.

Misconduct in Office by Dr. William Hite Jr and Monica Goldson

Goldson engaged in well-known misconduct with Dr. William Hite Jr. during Dr. William Hite’s tenure in PGCPS. Goldson left her husband and filed for divorce due to an affair. Confirmed reports say that Dr. Monica Goldson was dating Dr. William Hite Jr when she initiated her divorce proceedings from her husband Mr. Lyndell Goldson on or around 11/03/2008. ( See Case # CAD08-32088 GOLDSON VS GOLDSON). For those who are not familiar with Dr. William Hite Jr, the corruption in Prince George’s County was fueled by him, and this blog initiated a vote of “No confidence.” Consequently, he left the county ASAP due to serious issues he was engaged in. (See Some leaders in PGCPS – Heart of the problems in Schools) Before transferring to Philly, local investigations were partially done on Dr. William Hite and issues covered up. Dr. William Hite promoted Monica Goldson before he left and was pulling the strings from afar in PGCPS for many years and still does. Dr. Hite then jumped ship out of fear of being fired and prosecuted for money laundering, willful neglect of duty inter alia. There was a $10 million bribe scheme tied to Prince George’s County Community College’s President, Dr. Charlene Dukes. Dukes was bribed by Dr. William Hite in order to advance corruption and interfere with the judgment of Josephat Mua.  

Once established in  Philadelphia School District, he has been misusing the district to advance his own personal interest at the expense of the public. Here he has been calling the shots in PGCPS from afar. This kind of willful misconduct does not advance goodwill for the people of Maryland. Prince George’s County citizenry must reject this kind of arrangement and demand proper investigations. In addition, Dr. Monica Goldson should resign as a CEO for Prince George’s County Schools. The hearing scheduled for December 17th, 2019 has suddenly been cancelled after exposing Dr. Monica Goldson’s misconduct.  (see notice of cancellation below). Read more >> Here

To many of us, our American political, social, economic entry into structures began with Town Halls where some of us asked several elected officials if they were really committed to getting corporate money out of American political, social, economic contexts and to stop the interference of the officials in the local court system. Several corrupt politicians comfortably stated they will continue the illegal practice including to take corporate PAC money and even admitted the corrupt influence it has.

Many of us refuse to let any politician become so comfortable that they willingly indulge into pay-to-play politics. That is not how democracy works.

Our American political, social, economic frameworks have been corrupted by billionaires and politicians who are beholden to corporate interests. We must continue to bring a new generation of leadership to Maryland, but we can’t without you joining forces in this endeavor.

In the meantime, there are three bills your county delegation are attempting to put forth as legislation that many in the community do not believe will positively help Prince George’s county. Many of these bills appear to advance the “quid pro quos” of various situation and liquor consumption.

The analysis came from the wonderful Tamara Brown, she breaks down three bills that are NOT good for our community. We Thank, Tamara Brown, for sharing this with us.

She writes:

“It’s interesting that my Maryland state representatives have flooded my in-box with invitations to attend their fundraising events, but not a single one of them bothered to inform me/us that they were holding their annual public hearing on pre-filed bills affecting Prince George’s County.  I had to search the House Delegation’s website to review the bills and notify you of the next week’s hearing.

Although I think this responsibility lies with our elected officials (not me), here’s my synopsis of some of the proposed 2020 bills that have been pre-filed:

PG 407-20 Repealing Ethics Reform Laws –  Although Del. Davis’ bill failed in the Senate last year, he is reintroducing the bill this year to allow developers to directly contribute to the campaigns of the County Executive and her slate, including County Council members who have the direct authority to hear and decide all zoning matters.  He wants to repeal the safeguards put in place after the Johnson administration.  Because we need to keep developer money of our local election and continue to support public financing of local candidates,  I OPPOSE this bill again this year.

PG 304-20 Extending Family Entertainment Liquor Licenses to 2 a.m. – When I think of family, I think of all ages, especially those under the legal drinking age of 21.  I’m not so certain how Family Entertainment Liquor Licenses are used, but selling liquor where under aged children are present is already harm enough extending it past the current law’s time of midnight does more harm than good in my opinion.  Therefore, I OPPOSE this bill.  There are other liquor license-related bills that I do support like PG 301-20 that are worth supporting.

PG/MC 101-20 Amendments of Development Applications – Boy, this bill is full of legalese and certainly written by developers’ attorneys and lobbyists.  What arrested my attention is that the developers will be given three (3) times to amend an incomplete application and after the third time if the application is still not complete, the Planning staff must accept the (incomplete) application or act on it in 60 days.  Look, if the application is not correct after three failed attempts, it should be dismissed out right (3 strikes and you’re out).  Geez, I OPPOSE this bill.

Finally, the public hearing will be:

This Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the Prince George’s Community College Center for Performing Arts, Black Box Theater

301 Largo Road, Upper Marlboro, MD.

To register to speak, you must do so in-person between 5-6 p.m.

Please join me in attendance or at a minimum call, email or write your elected representatives and state officials including your Senators to voice your opinion on these and any other bills that will be introduced in 2020 General Assembly Session, which begins next month.

CONCLUSION: 

Dr. Monica Goldson, Dr. William Hite Jr., and Dr. Charlene Dukes have been corrupt officials in our school districts for way too long. Their actions and misconducts have consistently proven this. We need to take these people aside and conduct investigations into their actions which include interference of the officials in the local court system.

The American legal court system is supposed to address various grievances without fear or favor and it’s supposed to interpret the laws of the land to reduce the reality or appearance of corruption in American political, social, economic frameworks. In recent years, however, this regulatory regime has lent corruption a legal structure in which to flourish.

Also, any money associated with Kirwan Commission needs to be confiscated until an investigation on the the commission has taken place due to Dr. Alvin Thorton’s dealings with the corrupt union officials and the executive led by Dr. Goldson. These problems have persisted for far too long. It is time for someone to put their foot down and end the bias, blatant racism, discrimination, and corruption. People need to be aware of the public corruption with ties to some corrupt appointed and some elected officials in order to get these corrupt officials out in 2020 and beyond. Every official who has been silent when this poisoned chalice continues in the only majority black county by racist administrators without taking any action, needs to be voted out in 2020. Enough is enough!

Call your local elected representatives and state officials. Demand answers ASAP on PGCPS willful misconduct led by Dr. Monica Goldson, Dr. William Hite Jr.,  Dr. Charlene Dukes, PGCEA, MSEA, AFSCME International and ASASP Union. Tell them that, the public corruption currently in progress in Prince George’s County must end ASAP! Demand corrective actions immediately. #Resist #PrinceGeorge’sProud #VotethemOut #DrMonicaGoldsonResign 

(See attachment or the opinion of the administrative law judge, which Dr. Charlene Dukes was bribed to reverse)

Maryland State School Superintendent Karen Salmon stepping down in June amid widespread Public Corruption.

ScaleWidthWyI3MjAiXQ-MD-2019-superintendent-Karen-Salmon.jpg

State Superintendent of Maryland Schools Dr. Karen B. Salmon is not seeking another four-year contract, the state school board chair announced Tuesday afternoon.

Baltimore, Md. (Reform Sasscer) – Maryland State Schools Superintendent Karen Salmon, who oversaw the introduction of a complex new school accountability system and helped cover up misconduct in Prince George’s County, will step down in June. The state school board chair, (rt. Air Force Brig. Gen. Warner I. Sumpter) announced her resignation, Tuesday afternoon.

Baltimore sun was among the first newspapers to report.  However, details on public corruption in Prince George’s county linked to the Maryland state Board of Education were missing.

Salmon had until Dec. 1 to inform the board whether she would seek another four-year contract when she informed Sumpter that she would leave.

“She did contact me before that date, just decided that she preferred to move on. As far as I know, if she had shown an interest, the board would have voted for her to remain. “She has done a tremendous job,” Sumpter said according to Baltimore sun.

Former state board member Andy Smarick, who served as chair during her tenure, agreed.

“Dr. Salmon is a top-flight administrator — one of the most able public-sector managers I’ve seen,” said Smarick. “She is also a lifelong educator who cares a great deal about kids and public schools.”

However, Smarick’s statement was contradicted by an email cc’d to Dr. Salmon on June 27th, 2019 by Josephat Mua. This email highlighted various aspects of ongoing public corruption involving Dr. Godson and problems in Prince George’s County Public Schools in which the state Superintendent Salmon failed to act. (See attachment email at the bottom).

Inadequate Monitoring

Corruption thrives where principals (the rank and file) cannot effectively control their agents (union officers) or hold them accountable. External monitoring of union officers is weak as seen in Prince George’s County. Past reports concerning union corruption have pointed out that “it is all too easy for racketeers to control and exploit, in part because there is no effective mechanism for policing internal union affairs. The Landrum-Griffin Act was passed in an attempt to assure that workers would be represented by democratic unions” (Goldstock et al. 1990, 49).

In the 1980s, congressional hearings surfaced sharp criticism of the Department of Labor’s failure to monitor unions and their pension and welfare funds effectively (Jacobs and Mullin 2003). Because the Department of Labor’s “primary mission is to resolve labor-management problems [,] this necessarily requires good working relations with high-ranking labor officials and makes investigating and enforcing the complaints . . . against top labor officials at best awkward and, at worst, a conflict of interest” (Goldstock et al. 1990, 181).

Career of over 40 years of work in public education

Salmon did not say whether she is retiring, but a statement released from the Maryland State Department of Education said, “This culminates a distinguished career of over 40 years of work in public education.”

The search for a replacement will begin almost immediately with the hiring of a search firm, Sumpter said.

“This is usually the time of the year when most school systems are looking for their superintendents,” he said, “so the quicker you move the better off you are to bring in the largest pool of candidates.”

Salmon, whose job involves helping set education policy for the state, brought some stability to a bureaucracy that had had four superintendents in five years when she arrived in 2016. Before that leadership turnover, Nancy Grasmick held the job for two decades.

Salmon will leave on June 30, 2020, when her contract expires. By state regulations, superintendents in Maryland are all appointed for four-year terms that begin July 1.

When she was hired in 2016, the state was designing a new accountability system that would assign stars to schools. She oversaw the release of the second set of data on Tuesday, hours before the announcement that she would be leaving.

The school board voted unanimously in public to hire the former Talbot County superintendent more than three years ago, however, behind closed doors some board members had reservations. She had years of experience in education on the Eastern Shore before taking a job briefly in New York State. Salmon was an interim deputy state superintendent in Maryland before becoming superintendent. She continued to live in Talbot County, commuting to either Baltimore or a state office in Annapolis for work. In the early stages of her tenure, she worked closely under corrupt previous State Superintendent Dr. Lilian Lowery, who resigned under a cloud of corruption.

One of Salmon’s more controversial decisions came in May 2018 when Salmon blocked the Baltimore County school board’s appointment of Verletta White, a long-time educator in the county as the school’s superintendent. The move was unusual because state superintendents have rarely intervened in a local school board hiring process.

In this case, Salmon said the county had not completed an audit of contracts following the conviction of former superintendent Dallas Dance. White had worked for Dance.

Dr. William Hite Jr fiasco with Monica

However, there appears to have been a double standard when it came to PGCPS CEO Dr. Monica Goldson. Goldson engaged in well-known misconduct with Dr. William Hite Jr. during Dr. William Hite’s tenure in PGCPS. Goldson left her husband and filed for divorce due to an affair. Confirmed reports say that Dr. Monica Goldson was dating Dr. William Hite Jr when she initiated her divorce proceedings from her husband Mr. Lyndell Goldson on or around 11/03/2008. ( See Case # CAD08-32088 GOLDSON VS GOLDSON). For those who are not familiar with Dr. William Hite Jr, the corruption in Prince George’s County was fueled by him, and this blog initiated a vote of “No confidence.” Consequently, he left the county ASAP due to serious issues he was engaged in. (See Some leaders in PGCPS – Heart of the problems in Schools) Before transferring to Philly, local investigations were partially done on Dr. William Hite and issues covered up. Dr. William Hite promoted Monica Goldson before he left and was pulling the strings from afar in PGCPS for many years and still does. Dr. Hite then jumped ship out of fear of being fired and prosecuted for money laundering, willful neglect of duty inter alia. There was a $10 million bribe scheme tied to Prince George’s County Community College’s President, Dr. Charlene Dukes. Dukes was bribed by Dr. William Hite in order to advance corruption and interfere with the judgment of Josephat Mua.  

Once established in  Philadelphia School District, he has been misusing the district to advance his own personal interest at the expense of the public. Here he has been calling the shots in PGCPS from afar. This kind of willful misconduct does not advance goodwill for the people of Maryland. Prince George’s County citizenry must reject this kind of arrangement and demand proper investigations. In addition, Dr. Monica Goldson should resign as a CEO for Prince George’s County Schools.

Ever since Dr. Monica Goldson was appointed PGCPS CEO, there has been widespread interference of Federal and State laws to suit her illegal agenda. However, Dr. Salmon has largely looked the other way despite clear and convincing evidence of willful neglect of duty. The union’s executives currently in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS), Theresa Dudley of Prince George’s County Education Association (PGCEA), Doris Reed of Association of Supervisory and Administrative School Personnel (ASASP), and Mr. James Spears of ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 have been compromised. This interference might be having an impact on parents, teachers, students and other staff in Prince George’s County. Personnel well connected to the executives are well received and covered up by the unions, while others who try to report wrongdoing within the county organization are victimized and fired.

In other words, the role of the Unions in Prince George’s County has become meaningless due to personal greed, as reported earlier. It’s a timely reminder that in Monica Goldson’s vision, public service is an amorphous concept. What matters, from the CEO’s perspective, is service to her. Loyalty to the county, state, nation and the rule of law are nice ideas, but CEO Monica Goldson expects and demands fealty to her and her own interests – above all other considerations. The entire Prince George’s County school district is a very hostile work environment due to all cover-ups. Many teachers and administrators are gearing for mass transfers in addition to some taking legal actions to protect themselves due to the effect of the corrupt unions.

Furthermore, the union corruption, which is well known in this county and facilitated by senior administrators such as President Charlene Dukes of Prince George’s County Community college and others connected to her at the Maryland State Board of Education, is not helping with matters. In addition, not surprisingly corrupt union officials, whether or not connected to organized crime figures, engage in “ordinary” organizational corruption, such as misappropriation of funds. The most distinctive form of corruption by union officials is taking employers’ bribes to ignore violations of the collective bargaining contract as happens in PGCPS in many cases, or even to allow employers to operate nonunion. This must end ASAP and the racist management of the Maryland State Education Association (MSEA) must be reformed to include minorities in Maryland.

Political Corruption legalized by the Maryland State Institutions.

When discussing corruption in the Governor Larry Hogan era, it’s easy to focus on the most flagrant examples such as the real estate fiasco in Prince George’s County. In his statement yesterday, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan stated he has been leading the fight for more accountability, pushing to raise academic standards and to root out mismanagement and corruption in local school systems. However, his statement is contradicted by his own administration in which the Maryland Court system is being used to punish teachers, parents, and other staff members who have spoken out against public corruption prevailing in Maryland. Easier to miss is the more innocuous and pedestrian ways that money—especially large sums of it—shapes American political corruption.

The State of Maryland working in conspiracy with Prince George’s County public schools and the county government is involved in a shameful display of shenanigans in which PGCPS and Unions executives have engaged in willful misconduct which is currently being covered up by the state. For example, court judgment orders are being used to shield nominal parties starting with Dr. Monica Goldson, (CEO) Prince George’s County Public Schools, Dr. William R. Hite Jr, Pirre D. Dickson, Synthia J Shillings, Roger Thomas, ACE-AFSCME Local 2250, American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees, (AFSCME). They ought to by law and in equity to be fully bound and obligated to answer charges and crimes in which they committed without being protected through the court by judges whom they are said to be bribing. For example, the order issued by the Maryland Court of Special Appeals in the case brought by Josephat Mua against PGCPS, Dr. Monica Goldson, Dr. William Hite Jr, et al, lists the wrong case No. CAL11369952 instead of CAL1136992. The order issued by the Maryland Court of Special Appeals lists the Board of Education for Prince George’s County as Appellee and not Appellees. The Judgment dated and entered in the above-entitled action on 9th, July 2019 should be amended to include Dr. Monica Goldson and Dr. William Hite Jr. as additional parties who engaged in willful misconduct as Defendants.

This is public corruption driven by the state and Prince George’s County citizens must stand up and demand answers because institutional racism is involved in various agencies within the state.

Willful miscon­duct occurs when a person intentionally acts or fails to act knowing that (his, her) conduct will probably result in injury or damage. Willful misconduct can also occur when “a person acts in so reckless a manner or fails to act in circumstances where an act is clearly required, so as to indicate disregard of (his, her) action or inaction. A party claiming willful misconduct must show an “intentional act of unreasonable character performed in disregard of a known or obvious risk so great as to make it highly probable that harm would result.” The willful misconduct standard is similar to the gross negligence standard; however, it focuses more on the harm that a party’s action or inaction caused.

In addition, the parents and Prince George’s County employees must demand action due to the Union shenanigans currently at play in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) and illegal interference of the Maryland court system. At the moment, local court systems are hijacked by the cartels and tied to union corruption due to a lack of external monitoring of union officers in Maryland.

The American legal court system is supposed to address various grievances without fear or favor and it’s supposed to interpret the laws of the land to reduce the reality or appearance of corruption in American political, social, economic frameworks. In recent years, however, this regulatory regime has lent corruption a legal structure in which to flourish.

The announcement of Salmon’s departure was made at the state school board meeting in Baltimore. Sumpter said he would like to hire a replacement by April, if possible.

Call your local elected representatives and state officials. Demand answers ASAP on PGCPS shenanigans led by PGCEA, MSEA, AFSCME International and ASASP Union corruption currently in progress in Prince George’s County! Demand corrective actions immediately. #Resist #DrMonicaGoldsonResign

PGCPS Eisenhower Middle School students out of control and Drug use is a concern.

F5TYPRCBPVFSDDCODY37BUKLXQ.jpg

Laurel, Md. (Reform Sasscer) – Ask anyone who has worked in some of America’s failing public schools and nearly all of them will tell you the same thing: The biggest problem isn’t the quality of the teachers. It’s the behavior of the kids: angry, disruptive, and disrespectful kids whose behavior is out of control. This is true not only in the poor schools in the inner cities, but in schools in the largely white rural parts of the US as well. The kids themselves are only partly to blame — students, after all, are what adults make them. The ongoing fiasco at Bladensburg High School is a tip of the iceberg in Prince George’s county. Parents, staff and students must demand answers and the county citizenry must stand in solidarity to create proper reforms.

After our reports earlier this year concerning Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Eisenhower Middle School, reports reaching Reform Sasscer Movement indicate that, the same School is out of control. According to the information received by several sources who did not want to be identified, “kids told the staff they were running the halls because they did it last year and still passed to the next level,” stated one concerned member.

The principal told the teachers recently to address people outside of the classroom before they address him. He is afraid to run the school. There are concerns that new teachers receive little to no support. There are reports that the Instructional Director (ID) has been watching and it’s possible that she knows of the situation but is powerless.

Last month during parent-teacher conferences, the Principal told several staff that they were not permitted to go to the restroom against the union rules. He wanted the teachers to meet with more parents and thought they would leave early. The principal has allegedly turned several staff members away, but one Mrs. Johnson kept walking and went on. She had to go to the bathroom according to the reports received. During the same conferences, a lot of parents were complaining about all the bullying going on at the school.  However, President Theresa Dudley of Prince George’s County Education Association (PGCEA) has failed to respond to many challenges affecting teachers in the county including at Eisenhower Middle School, Bladensburg High School and others due to all conflicts of interests she is engaged in.

Recently a parent complained that she came to the school and saw students twerking on desks. New teachers are not being supported and they want to leave the teaching profession all together because of the lack of support. The principal, Mr. Mangrum, can do better according to the staff members who shared their concerns.

Inadequate Monitoring

Corruption thrives where principals (the rank and file) cannot effectively control their agents (union officers) or hold them accountable. External monitoring of union officers is weak as seen in Prince George’s County. Past reports concerning union corruption have pointed out that “it is all too easy for racketeers to control and exploit, in part because there is no effective mechanism for policing internal union affairs. The Landrum-Griffin Act was passed in an attempt to assure that workers would be represented by democratic unions” (Goldstock et al. 1990, 49).

In the 1980s, congressional hearings surfaced sharp criticism of the Department of Labor’s failure to monitor unions and their pension and welfare funds effectively (Jacobs and Mullin 2003). Because the Department of Labor’s “primary mission is to resolve labor-management problems [,] this necessarily requires good working relations with high-ranking labor officials, and makes investigating and enforcing the complaints . . . against top labor officials at best awkward and, at worst, a conflict of interest” (Goldstock et al. 1990, 181).

Drug Use at Eisenhower Middle School

Smoking weed in the bathroom is a common occurrence. Parents and teachers smell it when they enter. Many teenagers try marijuana and some use it regularly. Teenage marijuana use is at its highest level in 30 years, and today’s teens are more likely to use marijuana than tobacco. Many states allow recreational use of marijuana in adults ages 21 and over. Recreational marijuana use by children and teenagers is not legal anywhere in the United States. Today’s marijuana plants are grown differently than in the past and can contain two to three times more tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the ingredient that makes people high. The ingredient of the marijuana plant thought to have most medical benefits, cannabidiol (CBD), has not increased and remains at about 1%.

There are many ways people can use marijuana. This can make it harder for parents to watch for use in their child. These include:

  • Smoking the dried plant (buds and flowers) in a rolled cigarette (joint), pipe, or bong
  • Smoking liquid or wax marijuana in an electronic cigarette, also known as vaping
  • Eating “edibles” which are baked goods and candies containing marijuana products
  • Drinking beverages containing marijuana products
  • Using oils and tinctures that can be applied to the skin

Parents and Prevention
Parents can help their children learn about the harmful effects of marijuana use. Talking to your children about marijuana at an early age can help them make better choices and may prevent them from developing a problem with marijuana use later. Begin talking with your child in an honest and open way when they are in late elementary and early middle school. Youth are less likely to try marijuana if they can ask parents for help and know exactly how their parents feel about drug use.
Tips on discussing marijuana with your child:

  • Ask what they have heard about using marijuana. Listen carefully, pay attention, and try not to interrupt. Avoid making negative or angry comments.
  • Offer your child facts about the risks and consequences of smoking marijuana.
  • Ask your child to give examples of the effects of marijuana. This will help you make sure that your child understands what you talked about.
  • If you choose to talk to your child about your own experiences with drugs, be honest about why you used and the pressures that contributed to your use. Be careful not to minimize the dangers of marijuana or other drugs, and be open about any negative experiences you may have had. Given how much stronger marijuana is today, its effect on your child would likely be much different than what you experienced.
  • Explain that research tells us that the brain continues to mature into the 20s. While it is developing, there is greater risk of harm from marijuana use.

Sometimes parents may suspect that their child is already using marijuana. The following are common signs of marijuana use:

  • Acting very silly and out of character for no reason.
  • Using new words and phrases like “sparking up,” “420,” “dabbing,” and “shatter”
  • Having increased irritability.
  • Losing interest in and motivation to do usual activities.
  • Spending time with peers that use marijuana.
  • Having trouble remembering things that just happened.
  • Carrying pipes, lighters, vape pens, or rolling papers.
  • Coming home with red eyes and/or urges to eat outside of usual mealtimes.
  • Stealing money or having money that cannot be accounted for.

Effects of Marijuana
Many teenagers believe that marijuana is safer than alcohol or other drugs. When talking about marijuana with your child, it is helpful to know the myths and the facts. For example, teenagers may say, “it is harmless because it is natural,” “it is not addictive,” or “it does not affect my thinking or my grades.”

However, research shows that marijuana can cause serious problems with learning, feelings, and health.

Short-term use of marijuana can lead to:

  • School difficulties
  • Problems with memory and concentration
  • Increased aggression
  • Car accidents
  • Use of other drugs or alcohol
  • Risky sexual behaviors
  • Worsening of underlying mental health conditions including mood changes and suicidal thinking
  • Increased risk of psychosis
  • Interference with prescribed medication

Regular use of marijuana can lead to significant problems including Cannabis Use Disorder. Signs that your child has developed Cannabis Use Disorder include using marijuana more often than intended, having cravings, or when using interferes with other activities. If someone with Cannabis Use Disorder stops using suddenly, they may suffer from withdrawal symptoms that, while not dangerous, can cause irritability, anxiety, and changes in mood, sleep, and appetite.

Long-term use of marijuana can lead to:

  • Cannabis Use Disorder
  • The same breathing problems as smoking cigarettes (coughing, wheezing, trouble with physical activity, and lung cancer)
  • Decreased motivation or interest which can lead to decline in academic or occupational performance
  • Lower intelligence
  • Mental health problems, such as schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, anger, irritability, moodiness, and risk of suicide

Medical Marijuana
Some teens justify use of marijuana because it is used for medical purposes. Marijuana use with a prescription for a medical reason is called “medical marijuana.” Laws for medical marijuana are rapidly changing and are different from state to state. In some states, children of any age can get medical marijuana if they have a “qualifying medical condition.” There is very limited research supporting use of medical marijuana in children or teens for most conditions. In most states that allow medical marijuana, the marijuana is not regulated and therefore is not checked for ingredients, purity, strength or safety. There is no evidence that medical marijuana is any safer than other marijuana.

Cannabidiol (CBD)
Many parents have questions about CBD and how it may be helpful for their child. There is ongoing research on the use of CBD-containing products for conditions such as epilepsy, , PTSD, Tourette’s disorder, pain, and other diagnoses. For now, the use of CBD is only FDA-approved in children for specific forms of epilepsy and in adults for chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting. At this time, there is  not enough evidence to recommend CBD for other uses, in children and adolescents including the treatment of autism and other developmental disorders. The approved CBD requires a prescription. Many stores sell CBD products. However, there are no safety and quality requirements for non-prescription CBD. They may have harmful additives or interfere with prescription medication. If you are considering using CBD for your child, please discuss this with their physician prior to starting to prevent harmful effects.

Conclusion

There are ongoing problems at PGCPS Eisenhower Middle School and other schools in the county in which teachers, parents, and students are affected. This is due to lack of support from the administration of CEO Monica Goldson and lack of professional development which has been stopped until further notice.

Marijuana use in teens can lead to long-term consequences. Teens rarely think they will end up with problems related to marijuana use, so it is important to begin talking about the risks with your child early and continue this discussion over time. Talking with your child about marijuana can help delay the age of first use and help protect their brain. If your child is already using marijuana, try asking questions in an open and curious way as your teen will talk more freely if not feeling judged. If you have concerns about your child’s drug use, talk with your child’s pediatrician or a qualified mental health professional.

In addition, the parents and Prince George’s County employees must demand action due to the Union shenanigans currently at play in Prince George’s County public Schools (PGCPS) and illegal interference of the Maryland court system. At the moment, local court system appears currently hijacked by the cartels tied to the union corruption due to lack of external monitoring of union officers in Maryland.

Call your local elected representatives  and state officials. Demand answers ASAP on PGCPS shenanigans led by PGCEA, MSEA, AFSCME International and ASASP Union corruption currently in progress in Prince George’s County! Demand corrective actions immediately. #Resist

Fiasco after PGCPS Bowie High School teacher charged with sexual abuse of former student

K. Sean Donovan, 29, is charged with multiple charges including sexual abuse of a minor after an investigation revealed that he and a female student were having a relationship.
Prince George’s County Police Department

BOWIE, Md. (Reform Sasscer) – A Bowie High School teacher has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor in a case involving a teen who used to be his student, according to Prince George’s County police.

K Sean Donovan Jr., 29, of the 3200 block of Winterbourne Drive in Upper Marlboro after the student reported to a family member that she and Donovan were having a sexual relationship.  The reports stated that, the abuse started when the female student was 15, police said.

Law enforcement started investigating Donovan on Sunday after a family member of the girl learned she and Donovan where having intimate physical contact, police said. Donovan and his former student “engaged in sexual contact on school grounds multiple times since May of 2019,” with the most recent incident occurring in late November, police said in a statement announcing the charges.

Donovan has also been charged with third-degree sex offense and other related offenses, police said. A lawyer for Donovan could not be found through online court records, and he could not be immediately reached for comment.

A directory for Bowie High School lists Donovan as a science teacher. He was hired Sept. 17, 2018, and is now on administrative leave, a spokeswoman for Prince George’s County Public Schools said.

A text to the Union President Theresa Dudley for comment on this saga went cold as she was not available on Facebook. The Bowie High School Principal has in the meantime, sent a letter home to the parents of Bowie High School community. (See attached below)

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.

In the meantime, ever since Dr. Monica Goldson was appointed CEO, there is widespread interference of Federal and State laws to suit her illegal agenda. The unions Executives currently in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) starting with Prince George’s County Education Association (PGCEA), Association of Supervisory and Administrative School Personnel (ASASP) and ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 have been compromised. This interference might be having an impact on teachers, students and other staff in Prince George’s County. Personnel well connected are well received and covered up by the unions while others who try to report wrong doing within the county are victimized and fired.

In other words, the role of the Unions in Prince George’s County has become meaningless due to personal greed, as reported earlier. It’s a timely reminder that in Monica Goldson’s vision, public service is an amorphous concept. What matters, from the CEO’s perspective, is service to her. Loyalty to the county, state, nation and the rule of law are nice ideas, but CEO Monica Goldson expects and demands fealty to her and her own interests – above all other considerations. The entire school district is a very hostile work environment due to all cover ups going on. Many teachers and administrators are gearing for mass transfers in addition to taking legal actions to protect themselves due  the effect of the corrupt unions.

Furthermore, the union corruption which is well known in this county and facilitated by senior administrators such as President Charlene Dukes of Prince George’s County Community college and others connected to her is not helping with matters. In addition, of course, corrupt union officials, whether or not connected to organized crime figures, engage in “ordinary” organizational corruption, such as misappropriation of funds. The most distinctive form of corruption by union officials is taking employers’ bribes to ignore violations of the collective bargaining contract as happens in PGCPS in many cases, or even to allow employer to operate nonunion. This must end ASAP and the racist management of Maryland State Education Association (MSEA) must be reformed to include minorities in Maryland.

Many Schools in the Prince George’s County and around the country are dangerous places now due to mass shootings, gang fights, teachers fighting students, students fighting teachers, sexual assaults, public corruptions advanced by connected friends of lawmakers and judges and more. Things have changed greatly from the days that many baby boomers sat in school rooms. This is clearly very sad. We have to get back to civility, respect, calmness, and valuing the lives of others. Let’s let schools be cathedrals of learning. Educate to elevate! Read to lead! Learn to earn! God please provide safety for all at the schools!

It starts at home and teachers are supposed to be educators and not parents or baby sitters to young people who are completely out of control at home and in school who threaten to kill them like what we saw at Largo. Modern day parenting produced the millennials and post millennials, many of whom are now in the classrooms. For baby boomers and Generation X, parents have become pals with their children so there is no boundary for fear of losing a relationship with pal who just happens to also be your son or daughter. We are not at all surprised as to what happens in a classroom anymore, according to concerned parents in Prince George’s County.

Call your local elected representatives  and state officials and demand answers ASAP on PGCPS shenanigans,  PGCEA, and ASASP Union corruption currently in progress in Prince George’s County! Demand corrective actions immediately. #Resist

‘Corruption in Plain Sight’- Prince George’s County Cannot Afford the Kirwan Plan – Or Much Else

76773246_10157589070184631_6467406052609490944_n.jpg

Dr. Alvin Thornton (far left), Board member Curtis Valentine, Theresa Dudley (Center in red), Dr. William E. (Brit) Kirwan and unidentified union official are pictured during Kirwan commission hearing at Oxon Hill High School. Most union executives are involved in Public corruption and driving the federal bribery statute, 18 U.S.C. § 201(b) at will in Prince George’s County.

LARGO (Reform Sasscer) – History has a tendency to repeat itself in Prince George’s County.

This November, several state lawmakers announced a plan to reintroduce a $2.2 billion school construction and renovation spending bill in the upcoming legislative session. An identical measure failed in the Senate last session because of fiscal concerns.

The same lawmakers have failed to address a myriad of concerns involving the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) which are ongoing. CEO Dr. Monica Goldson and several union officials are engaged in conflicts of interests together with senior staff members led by chief of staff Christian Rhodes in “quid pro quo” deals.

The latest from Dr. Monica Goldson’s administration involves secretive union investments deals with Kirwan commission saga and a company in which the Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has a stake.

Hogan is the founder of the Annapolis-based Hogan Companies, which has completed more than $2 billion in real estate deals since 1985 and has continued to thrive since Hogan took office in 2015.

The governor has stepped aside from running the company and turned his assets over to be managed by a trust. Hogan Companies is now run by the governor’s younger brother, Timothy Hogan. The current Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) CEO Dr. Monica Goldson was in charge of the closure of many schools in the county. It is common knowledge that her becoming a CEO, a quid pro quo reward for dirty work in the midst of significant corruption, was a part of the “pay to play” deal that is a major issue to the public.

From drinking dirty water, asbestospublic corruption to embarrassing test scores, Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) has repeatedly made international headlines for having one of the worst school systems in the country.

As a solution, the Kirwan Commission proposes that PGCPS double its share of education spending by 2030, which would require the Prince George’s County to generate an additional $360.9 million in annual revenue by that date. Unfortunately, this recommendation is not only fiscally infeasible but would fail to solve underlying inequality problems that further contribute to Prince George’s County’s education crisis due to a lack of accountability.

Maryland localities have two main sources of revenue: income taxes and property taxes. Since Prince George’s County already levies a state maximum local income tax of 3.2 percent, the primary way to generate additional revenue would be to increase its property tax rate. Five Maryland counties cap their property tax rates or receipts but are allowed to exceed their charter limitations on local property tax hikes for the purpose of generating education funds.

Prince George’s County currently levies a property tax of $2.248 per $100 of assessed value, a rate that is already more than twice as high as any jurisdiction in Maryland. To generate an additional $360.9 million, by how much would Prince George’s County’s property tax rate have to rise?

This fiscal year, Prince George’s County’s net property tax receipts are expected to total approximately $913 million. To generate an additional $360.9 million for its schools, the county would need to collect approximately 42 percent more in property taxes. This would require an increase in Prince George’s County’s property tax rate to about $4.12 ($2.248 x 1.39) per $100 of assessed value, roughly triple that of other Maryland counties.

This is a rough estimate, of course; elected officials must be hoping that the Prince George’s County’s tax base will grow enough to make the necessary tax hike somewhat smaller, except that’s counter to recent history: Since 2010, Prince George’s County total property tax base has fallen in reality, inflation-adjusted terms. Unless that trend is reversed, the necessary hike might be even greater than 42 percent; clearly, Kirwan is asking the Prince George’s County to spend money it does not have — despite clear evidence that money is not going to fix the Prince George’s County school problems without a proper oversight of all the activities going on involving the corrupt Union officials.

In fact, Prince George’s County is already the seventh most spendthrift school district among the 100-largest school districts in the country. Prince George’s County spent $15,560 per pupil in 2019, only trailing New York City, Boston, Baltimore City, Montgomery, and Howard. Yet less than 15 percent of Prince George’s County’s elementary and middle school children are proficient in math, and only 13 percent are proficient or advanced in English. This puts Prince George’s County at the bottom three in the nation and competing with Baltimore city, ahead of only Cleveland and Detroit.

There are, however, more evidence-based and cost-effective ways to help struggling children improve their learning outcomes without bankrupting Prince George’s County.

According to a study by Stanford University’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes, students at Maryland’s charter schools, especially those who are Black or Hispanic, outperform their counterparts in traditional public schools. The study found that Black charter students made math gains equivalent to 47 extra days of learning, and Hispanic charter students made reading gains equivalent to 77 additional days of learning. However, Charter schools in Maryland are poorly managed and the majority of them are engaged in embezzlement schemes.

Some 81 percent of Prince George’s County schools have student populations characterized by concentrated poverty; roughly 40 percent of students are eligible for reduced-price meals. This explains why Prince George’s County education reforms should be, first and foremost, strategically designed to address deep-rooted inequality problems and corruption driven by senior management. This can be done by working closely with victims of major corruption and whistle-blowers such as Josephat Mua who have been hurt deliberately by current CEO Dr. Monica Goldson and her minions. Expanding charter school options when public corruption is so high in Prince George’s County and many parts of Maryland is not the answer!

The investments may be legal, but the murky source of the cash and Monica Goldson’s lack of disclosure, in addition to other ethical issues surrounding her governance of the school system (some of which involve a breach of contract, conspiracy, advancement of fraud inter alia), make the entire situation look bad.  One parent who did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation told Reform Sasscer secretariat, “It will cause people to wonder whether she is being improperly influence.”

There are reports some despots connected to public corruption in Maryland are channeling their ill-gotten wealth through financial services conglomerate Goldman Sachs via the Cayman Islands and elsewhere by other means, making the original sources impossible to track. Neither Cadre nor Goldman is required to make the investors public and neither company has expressed an interest in doing so.

In any case, Prince George’s County as a District simply has no choice but to resist the Kirwan plan and the higher property tax rates necessary to fund it. This year, Prince George’s County saw its biggest population loss in a single year since 2001. Driving more taxpayers to the surrounding suburbs by taxing them even more aggressively is neither a viable nor advisable option for fixing the Prince George’s County’s broken school system which continues to get worse due to corruption at plain sight facilitated by officials working under color of law and corrupt union officials. It’s time to say NO to the despots.

PGCPS Parents concerned about classroom violence after teacher, student Brawl at Largo High School

Still1119_00026

A viral video of a fight between a teacher and a student inside a Prince George’s County high school classroom has parents demanding answers.

LARGO, Md. (Reform Sasscer) – Some parents are expressing strong concern for the safety of teachers along with students at Largo High School in Prince George’s County.

More than 100 people turned out in major force for a PTSA meeting Tuesday night to discuss the violent fight between a student and teacher that was caught on camera Friday. Video of the fight has gone viral worldwide.

FIGHT_THUMB

Vivian Noirie, 36, was arrested Friday after the assault at Largo High School on an unidentified 17-year-old student, who appeared to knock into the teacher from behind in the middle of the packed classroom, according to footage obtained by the press.

Prince George’s County police said the student was upset that Noirie had contacted her parents the night before and confronted her, stepping on the teacher’s foot before bumping into her with her shoulder. That caused Noirie to erupt, sending the educator into a frenzy as she repeatedly hits the student from behind, video shows.

After a hearing Monday November 18, a Prince George’s County judge released 36-year-old Vivian Noirie on the conditions she stay away from any witnesses, Largo High School and children, other than her own child.

The 36-year-old appeared in a Prince George’s County courtroom via video to be arraigned on charges of 2nd degree assault and physical child abuse.

Several teachers and county citizens came in person to show their support, including Noirie’s husband and the Prince George’s County Educators’ Association President, Theresa Mitchell Dudley who faced pressure online.

Police have said they’re also seeking to charge the teen girl through the juvenile court system.

Mitchell Dudley who was pushed to help the teacher through social media by colleagues now believes Noirie did not get the support she needed and told reporters Noirie had called for help with this 17-year-old student before the fight erupted.

The fight isn’t the only incident of concern. Reform Sasscer has learned as reported earlier, late last month a student brought a fully loaded magazine and taser into the school among other items, and at least one other teacher has voiced concerns over safety in general at the school.

At the PTSA meeting, the principal announced book bags will now have to stay in lockers and students will only be allowed to carry clear or mesh bags throughout the school.  Weapons are not welcome at the school grounds of any kind.

People at the meeting were asked to write down their questions and concerns but officials said there wasn’t time to answer them all so they promised to post answers on the school’s website. Some parents in the audience felt the meeting was nothing more than a publicity stunt… Another parent stated that, the issues were going to be brushed off under the table.

The president of the Student Government Association said the SGA is working on forms for the students to fill out asking for feedback on ways to “bring us all together.”

Beleaguered Prince George’s County Educators’ Association President Theresa Dudley showed up late for the meeting. She was retaliatory rather than help advance the current agenda affecting the county school system. However, that’s a another story for another day.

‘Educators are human,’ union says after PGCPS teacher charged in major brawl

FIGHT_THUMB

A PGCPS teacher was arrested after video surfaced of a fight between a staff member and at least one student Friday morning at Largo High School in Prince George’s County – major brawl has been seen worldwide.

LARGO, Md. (Reform Sasscer ) — A violent brawl between a teacher and a student at Largo High School last week is a “horrific symptom” of many many other problems plaguing the Prince George’s County school system, including overcrowded classrooms, lack of fair representation, public corruption and a lack of mental health services for both students and teachers. Part of this was confirmed by the beleaguered Prince George’s County teachers union President Theresa Dudley through a letter shared on social media.

Vivian Noirie, of Clinton, Maryland, has been charged with physical child abuse and second-degree assault in what police have called an “extraordinarily violent” encounter that was partly captured on video, which was then uploaded online for all to see.

Vivian Noirie, 36, was arrested Friday after the assault at Largo High School on an unidentified 17-year-old student, who appeared to knock into the teacher from behind in the middle of the packed classroom, according to footage obtained by the press.

Prince George’s County police said the student was upset that Noirie had contacted her parents the night before and confronted her, stepping on the teacher’s foot before bumping into her with her shoulder. That caused Noirie to erupt, sending the educator into a frenzy as she repeatedly hits the student from behind, video shows.

After a hearing Monday November 18, a Prince George’s County judge released 36-year-old Vivian Noirie on the conditions she stay away from any witnesses, Largo High School and children, other than her own child.

The 36-year-old appeared in a Prince George’s County courtroom via video to be arraigned on charges of 2nd degree assault and physical child abuse.

Several teachers and county citizens came in person to show their support, including Noirie’s husband and the Prince George’s County Educators’ Association President, Theresa Mitchell Dudley who faced pressure online.

Police have said they’re also seeking to charge the teen girl through the juvenile court system.

Mitchell Dudley who was pushed to help the teacher through social media by colleagues now believes Noirie did not get the support she needed and told reporters Noirie had called for help with this 17-year-old student before the fight erupted.

Mitchell Dudley released this statement earlier:

Noirie’s attorney told a judge on Monday that before this fight, Noirie lived a “sterling life. He also brought attention to possible issues on the job.”

Attorney Alex Leikus claimed the 36-year-old informed a friend about being or feeling threatened.

He claimed she had been assaulted on the job three times before.

When asked, a spokesperson for the Prince George’s County Public Schools told the press  they will “conduct a thorough review once the criminal issues are resolved.”

In a statement Monday, beleaguered Prince George’s County Educators’ Association President Theresa Dudley said she’s following the case closely. “Verbal and physical assaults on educators are too common,” Dudley said in the statement. “There is a sense that, as an educator, we should continue to keep taking abuse, threats and assaults from students, parents and administrators because we are the adults in the room.”

“Educators are human and need the same emotional and mental supports as students to ensure that situations are appropriately addressed,” Dudley said.

The statement also criticized what it called a “‘Jerry Springer’ culture” that “condones violence, publicizes it as a virtue and accepts it as a norm, must cease.”

She also told the press a GoFundMe page was created to help pay for the teacher’s legal fees. However, many teachers do not trust her managing the account. One teacher stated…”I don’t trust them with my money..” Several staff have suggested Theresa Dudley recuse herself from managing the GoFundMe page due to conflicts of interest.

In charging documents, Prince George’s County police said the teen told detectives she came to Noirie’s classroom about 10:15 a.m. Friday and approached the teacher about an email the teacher had sent to the student’s mother the night before about the teen’s behavior.

At first, Noirie refused to talk with the student without a third party present, because the student was being hostile, the teen told police.

The student told detectives she followed the teacher around the classroom “to force the (teacher) to talk with her,” police wrote in charging documents.

The student told police at one point she “accidentally” stepped on the teacher’s foot and ignored her teacher several times when she was told to sit down because she wanted answers.

The student told police she “pushed past” the teacher to leave the classroom and “bumped into her,” when the teacher became enraged and struck the student in the back of the head several times with her fist, kicked her and threw her to the ground, police said in charging documents.

School employees stepped in and separated the teacher and student.

But, once they were separated, the student grabbed the teacher from behind and repeatedly struck her, before once again being separated, police said.

Neither the teacher nor the student were seriously hurt.

Last week, police said about 30 students and eight administrators were being interviewed as witnesses in the case.

Part of the altercation was captured on cellphone video that was subsequently posted on social media. The teachers union said the posting of the video violated students’ privacy and is a violation of school policy.

In the meantime, ever since Dr. Monica Goldson was appointed CEO, there is widespread interference of Federal and State laws to suit her illegal agenda. The unions Executives currently in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) starting with Prince George’s County Education Association (PGCEA), Association of Supervisory and Administrative School Personnel (ASASP) and ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 have been compromised. This interference might be having an impact on teachers, students and other staff in Prince George’s County.

In other words, the role of the Unions in Prince George’s County has become meaningless due to personal greed, as reported earlier. It’s a timely reminder that in Monica Goldson’s vision, public service is an amorphous concept. What matters, from the CEO’s perspective, is service to her. Loyalty to the county, state, nation and the rule of law are nice ideas, but CEO Monica Goldson expects and demands fealty to her and her own interests – above all other considerations.

In addition, of course, corrupt union officials, whether or not connected to organized crime figures, engage in “ordinary” organizational corruption, such as misappropriation of funds. The most distinctive form of corruption by union officials is taking employers’ bribes to ignore violations of the collective bargaining contract as happens in PGCPS in many cases, or even to allow employer to operate nonunion. This must end ASAP and the racist management of Maryland State Education Association (MSEA) must be reformed to include minorities in Maryland.

Many Schools in the Prince George’s County and around the country are dangerous places now due to mass shootings, gang fights, teachers fighting students, students fighting teachers, sexual assaults, public corruptions advanced by connected friends of lawmakers and judges and more. Things have changed greatly from the days that many baby boomers sat in school rooms. This is clearly very sad. We have to get back to civility, respect, calmness, and valuing the lives of others. Let’s let schools be cathedrals of learning. Educate to elevate! Read to lead! Learn to earn! God please provide safety for all at the schools!

It starts at home and teachers are supposed to be educators and not parents or baby sitters to young people who are completely out of control at home and in school who threaten to kill them like what we saw at Largo. Modern day parenting produced the millennials and post millennials, many of whom are now in the classrooms. For baby boomers and Generation X, parents have become pals with their children so there is no boundary for fear of losing a relationship with pal who just happens to also be your son or daughter. We are not at all surprised as to what happens in a classroom anymore, according to concerned parents in Prince George’s County.

86% of the Prince county residents believe the student should be charged… But there are others watching to make sure diversion is in effect.

Here are some of the reactions concerning President Theresa Dudley statement above:

One teacher stated the following…..“Blah blah blah. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT??? I got zero help from her or the union when a kid and his family (who, by the way, is the best friend of the younger brother of the student in this Largo video…..) lied about me on several occasions, saying I put my hands on the kid and I was out on administrative leave for 3 months! The union did NOTHING for me! They didn’t call me or email me. I had no clue what was happening. My principal is the one who got me back to work, not the union!”

Another teacher stated the following ….”That email was ridiculous! Interesting how she made it about her (the worst thing she’s seen in her time! Which has been a blink!). Also, she won’t let this ONE incident (blah blah blah). ONE INCIDENT?!! WTF?! Some of us have or had those types of incidents daily! I was so pissed when I read that email!! What did you think?”

Another staff member stated the following ….”daaaaayum she referenced jerry springer! what a throwback 🤣”

Another staff member stated the following …..”Every teacher need to have a family attorney. A student grab my arm and I told the school I was gonna press charges. I left work and file charges with the magistrate. The kid was removed from my classes and was told to stay away from me. Once the school did there part I drop the charges. I believe in the court system…. I’m not gonna stoop to there level. Parents don’t want the real heat. They can’t afford no court case… I’m not the one… I got a good attorney how about you😊”

Another staff member stated the following…….“its about to get uglier in here thanks to latest email”

Update: PGCPS Largo Teacher Charged with Assaulting Student

Vivian Noirie, 36 on her own recognizance Monday based on conditions that she stays away from minors other than her own children

Upper Marlboro, Md. (Reform Sasscer) – A Prince George’s county judge released Vivian Noirie, 36 on her own recognizance Monday based on conditions that she stays away from minors other than her own children and from the location of the incident. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 19.

Noirie, who had been behind bars without Bond since Friday appeared worried during the afternoon hearing at the Prince George’s County court house.

Noirie went berserk and attacked the student who bumped into her in a classroom, setting off a “horrific” fight that was captured on video, police and school officials said.

Vivian Noirie, 36, was arrested Friday after the assault at Largo High School on an unidentified 17-year-old student, who appeared to knock into the teacher from behind in the middle of the packed classroom, according to footage obtained by the press.

Prince George’s County police said the student was upset that Noirie had contacted her parents the night before and confronted her, stepping on the teacher’s foot before bumping into her with her shoulder. That caused Noirie to erupt, sending the educator into a frenzy as she repeatedly hits the student from behind, video shows.

Noirie then violently throws the teen to the floor before kicking the girl several times, leading other students to break up the melee, according to the footage.

Once separated, the unidentified teen grabbed Noirie from the rear and repeatedly hit her again several times before the scuffle was broken up a second time by the school security, police said.

Noirie was charged with child abuse and second-degree assault in the incident. Detectives are also pursuing charges against the student, police said.

Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Monica Goldson said the teacher, in her mid-30s, began working for the school system in November 2018. The student is a 17-year-old senior. Monica Goldson, CEO of Prince George’s County Public Schools who is engaged in public corruption with Dr. Charlene Dukes and others , told the press she was “extremely disappointed by the horrific actions” in the footage.

“It’s important to know that we have set high expectations and standards for our staff and students, and what you saw in that video does not represent the hard work that 10,000 teachers do every day,” Goldson said.

However, Goldson has failed to disclose that, she has been facilitating public corruption  which is currently running amok in Prince George’s County. During the recent union meeting with PGCEA, Goldson failed to address the issues presented to her and stated she had less than 30 minutes for a meeting with them. Theresa Dudley who is in bed with corrupt regime took most of the time without going into specifics against the rules.

Neither Noirie nor the student required medical attention after the fight, police said.

The disturbing brawl took place one week after a high school teacher in Texas was caught on camera viciously attacking a special-needs student at Lehman High School in Kyle.

Tiffani Shadell Lankford, 32, was charged with aggravated assault in the Nov. 8 attack, which has left the teen too terrified to return to the classroom, according to a report.

Lankford, who was charged after footage of the assault went viral, can be seen punching the teen before pulling her away from a desk and stomping on her head like Jerry Springer show.

If convicted, she faces up to 20 years in prison.

In the meantime, ever since Dr. Monica Goldson was appointed CEO, there is widespread interference of Federal and State laws to suit her illegal agenda. The unions Executives currently in Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) starting with Prince George’s County Education Association (PGCEA), Association of Supervisory and Administrative School Personnel (ASASP) and ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 have been compromised. This interference might be having an impact on teachers, students and other staff in Prince George’s County.

In other words, the role of the Unions in Prince George’s County has become meaningless due to personal greed, as reported earlier. It’s a timely reminder that in Monica Goldson’s vision, public service is an amorphous concept. What matters, from the CEO’s perspective, is service to her. Loyalty to the county, state, nation and the rule of law are nice ideas, but CEO Monica Goldson expects and demands fealty to her and her own interests – above all other considerations. The entire school district is a very hostile work environment due to all cover ups going on. Many teachers and administrators are gearing for mass transfers in addition to taking legal actions to protect themselves due  the effect of the corrupt unions.

Furthermore, the union corruption which is well known in this county and facilitated by senior administrators such as President Charlene Dukes of Prince George’s County Community college and others connected to her is not helping with matters. In addition, of course, corrupt union officials, whether or not connected to organized crime figures, engage in “ordinary” organizational corruption, such as misappropriation of funds. The most distinctive form of corruption by union officials is taking employers’ bribes to ignore violations of the collective bargaining contract as happens in PGCPS in many cases, or even to allow employer to operate nonunion. This must end ASAP and the racist management of Maryland State Education Association (MSEA) must be reformed to include minorities in Maryland.

Many Schools in the Prince George’s County and around the country are dangerous places now due to mass shootings, gang fights, teachers fighting students, students fighting teachers, sexual assaults, public corruptions advanced by connected friends of lawmakers and judges and more. Things have changed greatly from the days that many baby boomers sat in school rooms. This is clearly very sad. We have to get back to civility, respect, calmness, and valuing the lives of others. Let’s let schools be cathedrals of learning. Educate to elevate! Read to lead! Learn to earn! God please provide safety for all at the schools!

It starts at home and teachers are supposed to be educators and not parents or baby sitters to young people who are completely out of control at home and in school who threaten to kill them like what we saw at Largo. Modern day parenting produced the millennials and post millennials, many of whom are now in the classrooms. For baby boomers and Generation X, parents have become pals with their children so there is no boundary for fear of losing a relationship with pal who just happens to also be your son or daughter. We are not at all surprised as to what happens in a classroom anymore, according to concerned parents in Prince George’s County.

Mrs. Theresa Mitchell Dudley (pictured here) is a real thug based on many observations. She is currently serving two masters and should resign one position due to conflicts of interests in politics. She is also engaged in a pattern of racketeering activity in PGCPS. #DespotsMustFall

noirie-wings

36-year-old Vivian Noirie faces child abuse and assault charges after a recorded fight with a student at Largo High School.

LARGO, Md. (Reform Sasscer ) —- The Largo High School teacher shown fighting a student on video now faces child abuse and assault charges.

36-year-old Vivian Noirie of Clinton will appear in court next month. Police say they are also pursuing juvenile charges against the 17-year-old student.

The fight happened around 10:25 a.m. Friday at the school. Police say the student confronted Noirie after the teacher called her parents the night before.

Cellphone video shows Noirie punch the student after she steps on her foot and bumps into her in the classroom. Other high school staff then step in to separate the two.

Police say the student grabbed Noirie from behind and repeatedly struck her after they were separated. Officers declined to comment further.

The school’s website identifies Noirie as a Spanish teacher.

This is a developing story. Check back later for updates.

In the meantime, ever since Dr. Monica Goldson was appointed CEO, there is widespread interference of Federal and State laws to suit her illegal agenda.

The entire school district is a very hostile environment due to all cover ups going on.

In the current set up, Monica Goldson who has past ties to PGCEA and ASASP unions has made the Unions an extension arm of her office as an Executive which is unfair to the workers but that is another story for another day. It’s time to say No to the despots. #DespotsMustFall.
