What Should Be Remembered About Synthia Shilling’s Departure from PGCPS

with one comment

While I was on vacation, The Washington Post reported that Prince George’s County Public Schools’ (PGCPS) Chief of Human Resources Synthia Shilling would resign from her position and was facing criminal charges. It’s unfortunate that it requires a criminal act for her to resign, because she has demonstrated gross misconduct and incompetence throughout her tenure at PGCPS. From her approval of inflated salaries for many of her staff members (read my blog post about that here) to her mishandling of H-1B Visas in recruiting foreign teachers, it has been evident for quite some time that she was incapable of performing her duties. It’s too bad that only the criminal part of her history will be remembered as she leaves the county payroll, because it was really her ineptitude, coupled with the unwillingness of PGCPS leaders to hold her accountable and fire her, which voters should remember. That’s the real moral of this story, and the narrative we all need to focus on as we move forward.
