Prince George's County Board of Education Chairwoman Verjeana Jacobs, '96, was quoted in The Washington Post and WTOP on County Executive Rushern L. Baker III's (D) plan to take over the school system by appointing a new superintendent to his cabinet and assuming authority over the school system’s $1.7 billion budget.

Jacobs said she recently talked to a teacher who said she worked for the system for 14 years and had seen seven superintendents come through the system. "If a superintendent works at the pleasure of the county executive, who is elected every four years, how does that lead to stability?” Jacobs asked.
