Facebook Page Seeks Recall of Atlanta School Board

Facebook Page Seeks Recall of Atlanta School Board

ATLANTA -- You knew it had to happen.

Someone has created a Facebook page aimed at recalling members of the Atlanta School Board.

The page was launched Tuesday night, just hours after the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools put Atlanta Public Schools' accreditation on probation due to the political bickering of a "dysfunctional" board.

The first post on the Facebook recall page is supposedly from a parent with two children in Atlanta public schools who writes, "it is my desire to build support for my children and many others in demanding that the board immediately resign or otherwise step down."

Meanwhile, the battle continues over whether the board should fight back or comply with recommendations from SACS to save their accreditation.
