Monday night's vote to extend schools Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr.'s contract brings stability to a district that sorely needs it.
For parents in living in the Jackson High School cluster, that is critical.
It's important, says Summerhill parent Richard Quartarone because it allows APS to alow Davis to continue to lay the foundation of much needed improvements.
In this Patch Voices editorial, Quartarone, co-president of the Southeast Atlanta Communities for Schools, explained why keeping Davis in the short-term is critical to the long-term stability of APS and how this gives him the time to continue to implement his strategic vision.
Ultimately, he says, the focus should be facing the challenges that APS needs to conquer.
