The City's Education Advisory Committee needs your help drafting questions for the debate! The Prince George’s County Public Schools Board of Education is responsible for overseeing public education in the county. Four people are seeking the District 3 school board seat. Whoever is elected will play an important role in addressing the needs of children in our local schools. Please share questions you would like the candidates to be asked, and/or vote for the questions submitted by others. The debate moderators will use the information provided here to create a final set of questions.

District 3 stretches from Hyattsville, Mt. Rainier, Brentwood and North Brentwood west through Chillum, Rolling Crest, and Carole Highlands and north through Adelphi. The debate will take place May 24 at 6:30 p.m. at 4310 Gallatin Street. Join us in person, watch via Comcast 71/Verizon 12, or stream online via Hyattsville.org.

Please note that the City does not endorse any candidate in this election, and is assisting this event only as a service to residents. 

 

 

District 3 parents frequently lament that, while their work colleagues from Virginia and the Maryland surrounding counties admire their "cute neighborhoods" and affordable homes, the District 3 parents are openly criticized for enrolling their children in PGCPS neighborhood schools. Some have commented that their colleagues from other places almost equate it as child abuse to be part of PGCPS schools. Although part of this is the continuing stigma of the way Prince George's County continues to viewed by the DMV community and beyond and likely ongoing racial attitudes in our country, there are probably ways to accentuate our positives and solve our own problems without allowing our system to become a political football.
