Prince George’s Co. school board approves new legal representation as chair continues fight

June 13, 2022

In the first meeting since Chair Juanita Miller said she’d fight her removal, the Prince George’s County Board of Education voted to select new legal representation for board business. During its meeting Thursday, the school board approved a five-year, $765,000 agreement with the law firm of Shipley and Horn. In most school districts, a vote on choosing a law firm would fail to qualify as news, but fights over hiring legal counsel is what led to the bitter wrangling among Prince George’s County school board members, and prompted the State Board of Education to notify Miller they’d voted to charge her with misconduct in office.
