A shake-up of the Atlanta school board is coming this fall, when all nine seats will be decided and four incumbents aren’t seeking re-election.
The elections follow four years of cheating scandals, accreditation struggles and school closings.
“It could be a big turnover. The upside is that we’ll get some new ideas,” said board Chairman Reuben McDaniel, who has attracted two opponents running for the at-large District 8 seat. “Hopefully, we’ll get some fresh opinions combined with some stability to make the best decisions.”
