Don't Save Face, Save our Children!

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Nelson Mandela Education isn't a powerful weapon for many students in Prince George's County Public Schools (PGCPS). It has become a barrier for students who want to succeed. It is alleged that graduation requirements decreased to increase graduation rates, and students' grades were changed to camouflage the accuracy of their in-class performance. These allegations are serious and should be addressed to ensure PGCPS students have the proper resources and aptitude to excel in college, work, and life. PGCPS are replete with minority students. Should it be assumed minority students aren't smart enough to meet basic graduation requirements? If this is the spirit among PGCPS leadership, don't save face; change its leadership.
