Former School Board Member Sees 'Laborious' Legal Fight Ahead

Former DeKalb County Board of Education District 2 member Don McChesney said he believes the fight between the state and our school board is just getting started.

A former DeKalb County Board of Education member from the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff area believes residents should settle in for a long legal ride before the fight between the state and the board is resolved.

Don McChesney, who was unseated from his District 2 post by Marshall Orson last year, said last week on his blog he believes any potential changes to the board, including the removal of six members, will be bogged down in lawsuits from the board itself and individual members.

From McChesney's blog:

What will be the outcome of all this posturing and opining? The voter will eventually get hyper focused on our legislature and their law making abilities. The Charter School law was overturned two years ago. Will this bill, that was run through our legislature to purposely get rid of the DeKalb Board, survive the courts? If not, we need to focus on those responsible.
