As reported by Dan Whisenhunt in the Reporter Newspapers, APS will soon release a report on the alleged grade changing and institutional racism at NAHS that led to removal of key administrators at the school in October 2012.
North Atlanta High will be the focus of an upcoming Atlanta Public Schools report about allegations of grade changing and institutional racism at the school, Board of Education Chairman Reuben McDaniel confirmed July 23.
The report … is likely to reopen wounds from leadership changes at the school that occurred last October. At the time, APS leaders said the changes were about academic performance. Later it was revealed that McDaniel made several inquiries about the treatment of minority students at the school.
When the investigation of alleged grade changing was initially disclosed by APS officials last fall, there were few clues as to what kinds of grade changing investigators might be reviewing. It was also unclear if those grade-changing allegations were related to claims of institutional racism, the subject of a separate investigation. The institutional racism claims appear related to complaints some parents had about North Atlanta’s International Baccalaureate program.
The APS report is anticipated to be released in the near future.
