10/16 Prince George's School Board Candidates Forum at CenterPoint Church

Citywide forum to address the future of public school education in the County

Camp Springs, MD (October 16, 2012)—Partnership for The Renewal of Southern and Central Maryland (PRISCM) and SPACE’s (Safe Places for The Advancement of Community and Equity) are pleased to be holding Prince George’s County School Board Candidates Forum on Tuesday, October 16, 2012, 7PM at CenterPoint Church @FBC Camp Springs, 6936 Allentown Rd, Camp Springs, MD 20748. School Board Candidates, Zabrina Epps (District 1), Micah Watson (District 4), Verjeana Jacobs & Raaheela Ahmed (District 5), Henry Armwood & Carletta Fellows (District 7), and Edward Burroughs (District 8) are confirmed attendees. Parents, students, school staff, the general public are encouraged to attend and participate in the forum to learn more about each candidate and their campaign.

Pastor Orlando Bego, Education Community Organizer for SPACE’s and member of PRISCM says, “Purpose of the this Candidates Forum is to allow candidates to explain their positions on questions ranging from budget to policy and for the community to learn more about what the candidates will do for Prince George’s County. Pastor Bego went on to say, “Education in the county is faced with a thrust of an unstable system, from the vacant Superintendent and other administrative positions to the questionable state of Education Reform. We need leaders who are not only passionate but experienced to guide us forward.”

The event will start at 7:00 p.m., run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

This forum will give you a chance to hear directly from Prince George’s County School Board Candidates about how they plan to tackle the issues our students are facing.
