Legislative team meeting Oct. 21

UPDATE 10/18/10: I just received word that this meeting has been CANCELED, but they say they will reschedule it for a future date. So technically, I guess it’s been postponed. I’ll keep you posted.

 

If you’ve been following DeKalb County Schools in the news, you know that we’ve had our struggles with allegations of impropriety at the highest levels. You may also know that the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) has requested more information from our school board about the system’s operation. This is serious business — so serious that two members of the Georgia House of Representatives, Mary Margaret Oliver and Howard Mosby, are taking their own look into what’s happening in DeKalb.

Their group, called the DeKalb Study Work Group on Education Issues, will hold its next meeting on Thursday, Oct. 21, at 10 a.m. in the Capitol, room 341. They haven’t released the full agenda yet, but Dr. Mark Elgart, president of SACS, is scheduled to speak at the meeting.

While this isn’t directly related to gifted education, it is important to our school system as a whole, so I thought it merited a mention.
