On January 17 at 1:00 p.m., the Georgia State BOE will meet to determine if they should recommend to Governor Deal that he suspend the members of the DeKalb County Board of Education. This would allow him to clean house and effectively hit the "reset" button for the troubled school district. It's important to understand that the Board could wait to decide what steps, if any, to take. SACS has given DCSD until 12/31/2013 to comply with its recommendations.
We can't afford to wait. We must insist that the State BOE act now. Please SHARE our petition with every property owner, school parent, blog writer, neighborhood list and media person you might know. There will be no opportunity for public comment but each GA State School Board member will each be given a copy of the signed petition as of approximately January 15, 2013.
The Time is NOW!
