One day after receiving notice that the Atlanta Public School's accreditation is in jeopardy, the Atlanta Board of Education is examining what it must do to regain its status.
One of the requirements to get accreditation restored, is that the school board meet with a licensed mediator.
At the heart of the decision to place the Atlanta Public Schools' accreditation on probation is the infighting between school board members, particularly concerning the issue of who should lead the board, and how they should make decisions.
Dr. Mark Elgart is CEO of the accrediting organization, AdvancED.
He says that disharmony was particularly evident on the day that GBI agents entered some high schools as part of an investigation into an alleged cheating scandal.
Producing morons to be our future politicians.
