DeKalb school board fight lands in state Supreme Court | www.wsbtv.com

An ousted DeKalb County school board member is fighting for his job back, and the case has landed at the state Supreme Court.

On Monday, the justices heard arguments about the suspensions of six veteran county school board members. One of them, Dr. Eugene Walker, is challenging Gov. Nathan Deal’s decision, claiming it was unconstitutional.

The governor ordered the suspensions in February after alleged misconduct led the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, an accrediting agency, to put the district on probation. The group cited evidence of fiscal mismanagement and unethical practices by the school board.

The SACS director said issues have existed with DeKalb’s school board for nearly a decade, and the board is dysfunctional and does not put the students first.
