Here's the latest on the DeKalb BoE


Yesterday, I publically called for the removal of the DeKalb Board of Education. You can read my full statement here.

In a desperate eleventh-hour effort to stymie the removal process, the DeKalb BoE filed a lawsuit yesterday, using taxpayer funds, seeking a temporary restraining order to stall the State BoE hearings.

Today, the Fulton County Superior Court denied their request. The State BoE hearing is expected to proceed as scheduled tomorrow, Feb. 21 at 8am. Here's a link to the live webcast.

I encourage you to send your own thoughts to the State Board of Education. This page has contact information for each of the members.
