Atlanta Resident Starts Petition To Remove Superintendent Davis
Molly Read Woo started the online effort late Sunday night.
After the disastrous reign Beverly Hall over Atlanta's public school system, many parents saw the appointment of Erroll B. Davis Jr. to superintendent as a much-needed first step for a district beset with problems.
But not everyone is a fan.
One Atlanta resident has started an online campaign to remove Davis as APS' superintnendent.
Late Sunday night, Molly Read Woo sent a petition to each member of the Atlanta Board of Education, asking them to find a new superintendent instead of renewing Davis' contract.
Its committee of the whole meeting occurs at 2:30 p.m., followed by a community meeting at 6 pm and its legislative meeting at 7 p.m.
"I know this petition may be too late to have an impact, as the board is meeting today and members may have already decided whether or not they will vote to renew Davis' contract," Woo wrote. "Still, I wanted to make sure they knew how at least one APS parent felt about the issue before going into it today."
Woo said Davis has mismanaged APS resources. "He has a lack of concern and communication with those people who work hard to make our schools the best they can be for every student," she said.
"I am sure we can find a better candidate to lead Atlanta Public Schools through the next couple of years."
