The sad thing about the cheating scandal at Atlanta Public Schools during much of the past decade is that APS wasn’t alone. There was also Dougherty County.
The sad thing about the racketeering charges former APS chief Beverly Hall faces in the wake of the scandal is that she isn’t the only ex-superintendent awaiting trial. There’s also former DeKalb schools leader Crawford Lewis.
The sad thing about the infighting and incompetence among the DeKalb school board members Lewis left behind is that they aren’t the only board in recent history to threaten their system’s accreditation. Before DeKalb there were the Clayton County and APS boards.
