Coalition Voices Support for Ethics Complaint against Atlanta Board of Education

 

Atlanta, GA - A coalition of community organizations will stand together as an ethics complaint is submitted to Atlanta Public Schools’ Ethics Board. The Atlanta Board of Education violated their rules in their March 4th meeting as they adopted the So-Called “Excellent Schools Framework” privatizing Portfolio Plan. The portfolio adoption of the So-Called “Excellent Schools Framework” is therefore invalid.
