Georgia Democrats: AdvancED “micromanaging, meddling”

Public school districts in North Carolina and Georgia are unhappy with accreditation agency/bully AdvancED, and legislators in both states are fighting back.  In North Carolina, Republicans from Wake and Burke counties are leading the opposition, but in Georgia, African-American Democrats from the Atlanta area are objecting to AdvancED’s “micromanaging, meddling” ways.

“SACS has so much power.  It’s unfettered power. They can say anything, do anything.” – Sen. Vincent Fort, D-Atlanta

 

“The thing that is so amazing is that they are doing the very thing they are accusing school boards of, that is micromanaging, meddling.” – State Rep. Gloria Tinubu, D-Atlanta
