The official videotape of yesterday’s (2013.1.17) DeKalb County Board of Education hearing before the State Board of Education will not be available in the GaDOE archives until around the middle of next week because it has to be edited. But, we do have a 2-Part video made by a contributor to DeKalb School Watch. (The contributor is unnamed until we receive permission to include his/her name.)
“Suspension Hearing of the Board Members
of DeKalb Board of Education”
“On January 17th, the State Board of Education held a suspension hearing concerning the Board Members of the DeKalb County Board of Education. DeKalb County School District was placed on probation by SACS – December 2012.
“The contributing editor asks that you view both videos and answer the questions below:
“1. Should the DeKalb County Board of Education be removed by Governor Deal?
“2. Should DeKalb County maintain local control through the use of “recall” and elect new representation?”
Also, make sure you download the “DCSS Consent Order: (Consent Order as published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
