A Local Feud Proves Toxic

A school leadership crisis that has dragged on since last fall is threatening Clayton County public school system to lose its accreditation. Loss of this accreditation could mean future Clayton County graduates would have trouble being accepted to college or would miss out on merit scholarships. Clayton County's members have feuded with each other, intimidated staff members, and undermined the work of administrators. The situation in Clayton County, which is extreme, serves as a warning to elected school board members nationwide that their behavior in office can have severe consequences for their districts in an era of increased accountability.
