Gov. Hogan meets with P.G.Co. leaders over school grade-changing concerns
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. (WBFF) - Gov. Larry Hogan met with leaders from the Prince George's County chapter of the NAACP Tuesday after serious criticism of that county's school system.
The president of the Prince George's NAACP said there needs to be a complete audit of the school curriculum.
Hogan met with leaders to discuss widespread irregularities in the system's high-school graduation rate.
The governor stopped short of calling for the ouster of school CEO Kevin Maxwell, but others at the meeting repeated that demand.
The NAACP president also said the county executive should be stripped of authority over the system.
Hogan is set to run against the Prince George's County Executive, Rushern L. Baker III, in the 2018 race for Maryland governor.
