Are you all aware of what the PG County Board of Education is voting on now?

Even if your kid writes a short story, poem, book, writes a song, ON HIS OWN TIME, it would be property of the Board of Education! Yet no one shows up at the Board meetings to object to this! Come on people, they are chipping away at all our freedoms one by one. Go to the next meeting and stand up and forbid it!

Did you get that? Read what they are doing ...

"A proposal by the Prince George’s County Board of Education to copyright work created by staff and students for school could mean that a picture drawn by a first-grader, a lesson plan developed by a teacher or an app created by a teen would belong to the school system, not the individual."

But it is the broad sweep of the proposed policy that has raised concerns.

“Works created by employees and/or students specifically for use by the Prince George’s County Public Schools or a specific school or department within PGCPS, are properties of the Board of Education even if created on the employee’s or student’s time and with the use of their materials,” the policy reads.“Further, works created during school/work hours, with the use of school system materials, and within the scope of an employee’s position or student’s classroom work assignment(s) are the properties of the Board of Education.”

Go to a meeting, call the Board members, object! Please.
