    Online Petition for Removal of Entire DeKalb County School Board Gaining Steam

    After being put on probation in 2012, the school board for the DeKalb County School District is now facing a petition from an angry parent who wants to see every member removed. DeKalb County parent Betsy Parks began a petition online to convince the state to remove members of the board. Parks’ online petition has 700 signatures from parents so far expressing frustration with the county’s probationary status; a second petition has more than 900 signatures.
