Dr. Monifa McKnight, Prince Georges County resident and Superintendent of the Montgomery County Public Schools was apparently asked to resign from her position by the seven elected Democrat women who run the Board of Education, according to reports in the media. The press speculated it was because of her ignorance of and promotion of a staffer with accusations of emotional abuse and sexual harassment of his staff and employees for years. Might also be because of the continued lack of educational improvement by many black and brown students in the MCPS (not in the private schools). Dr. McKnight and her attorney opposed the dismissal saying that the School Board had never done it to a male superintendent. Yes, they played the GENDER card. Apparently the School Board and the esteemed former superintendent reached a monetary payout before she had to play another card. The color of money trumps a lot, doesn't it. READ THE STORY BELOW
