DeKalb County School Board members went through a hearing before the Georgia School Board yesterday afternoon and got a reprieve, of sorts.

That decision was put off. The locals had hoped for a 90-day window to show improvement; the state board decided on 30 days—which really isn’t much time, given the depth-of-hole issues DeKalb County faces.
