Share Your Thoughts On Atlanta Public Schools

APS Board members host public forum on schools improvement.

by Patch Staff

Atlanta Public Schools board members Courtney D. English and Brenda J. Muhammad are hosting a focus group of teachers and administrators May 10 that is designed to get their ideas and concerns regarding efforts to improve district institutions.

The event, which is sponsored in the Speak Life Foundation, comes as APS has been under intense scrutiny in recent years following a national cheating scandal, near-loss of accreditation and a districtwide rezoning that has resulted in the closures of seven schools.

The meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., is at Hope-Hill Elementary School in Old Fourth Ward, 112 Boulevard NE.

I have no compassion for those who allowed their integrity to be compromised. Beverly Hall created the culture where this type of cheating behavior could occur. I would have resigned before allowed anyone to coerce me to cheat.

Hi, Tonii: Some other folks have said that to me, too. I remember when Hall was Supt. of the Newark Public Schools in New Jersey and wasn't any great shakes there. I always wondered how it is APS picked her to run the district.
