Public Safety
2011 Maryland General Assembly
Government & Politics
  • KhadijahOnline So happy to be in the loop regarding the political issues affecting my county thanks to @PGD9Politico @pgpolitics and @pgcpsparents 
    • Sounds familiar. RT @pgcpsparents: County exec states money may found to help schools but it comes with strings. (cont) http://tl.gd/94re73  
    • Rather than cut pay of high administrators, school systems begin this whole "get rid of failing teachers" thing...
    • Teachers rarely get away with performing poorly if their leadership demands otherwise. Failing schools in PG are due to failing leadership. 
    • Citizens are disengaged from the political activities affecting them because 1 out of 3 people are either trying to be famous...
    •  ...or preoccupied with trying to avoid being homeless... 
    • Engagement will have to center around helping people meet needs of safety & security and membership & belonging
  • pgcpsparents: PGCPS to cut more than 600 teachers due to budget cuts according to Dr. William Hite 
    • PGCPS to cut 1300 positions due to budget cuts and poor fiscal mgmt and oversight .
  • PG.School.Violence:
Local (Municipalities)
