    Wow.
    Embarrassing, indeed.

    Governor Deal has been a fantastic governor. I especially appreciate his reform to the incarceration culture and his intervention in the former school board that was grossly incompetent. Will he need to step in with the new unvetted superintendent? He may be good, may not be. The process was done behind closed doors with ZERO community input. The process MUST change.

    I have absolutely no problem with this action. Those of us with children in the system are so tired of dealing with incompetence, apathy, and other assorted malfeasance. Allowing my children to attend Dekalb County Schools has been a big mistake. When my youngest was in the 9th grade he came home one day and said “dad, there are those that do and those that don’t, and my school has a lot of don’ts”.

  4. The latest from the AJC >>

    The clock is ticking, DeKalb County has been warned, and commissioners have a year, at best, to get their house in order. Otherwise, residents may turn to cities and private agencies for services the county has been providing, Matrix Consulting Group cautioned in late March. But the fixes Matrix laid out in its draft study have the potential to rile powerful interests.
