Ga. to intervene in troubled school systems

  • Follow Latest News

ATLANTA - State officials will now have a hand in righting troubled local school districts under a bill Gov. Perdue has signed into law.

The legislation standardizes board ethics policies and board training, creates minimum qualifications for board candidates and gives the state the ability to replace school board members.

Perdue says the law gives Georgia the ability to step in when a local school system's accreditation is threatened and strikes a balance between local control and state intervention when systems are in crisis.
