Atlanta: The city too busy to have a functioning school board.

Atlanta’s public school system was placed on probation today by one of the nation’s top accrediting agencies.

Mark Elgart, president and CEO of AdvancED, said the city school board will have until Sept. 30 to make progress on six recommendations from the agency (see the list below) designed to improve leadership among members. The district could lose its accreditation if the agency’s suggestions are not addressed by the next review.

Board members spent more time “squabbling” than solving problems. Yep, that doesn’t sound anything at all like my time at APS schools. Nothing at all.

    It boggles the mind that so few elected officials have cared enough to speak out on APS and its many, many issues. Obviously, the entire board should be recalled. Why is it so difficult for Atlanta’s elected officials to say that?
