The appeals process has been in place for years. The decision to overturn a local school board's decision has always been defined as "final." It turns out the code was not enforceable, so it was necessary to revise the language. The legislative body passed the previous language, but now many members are questioning an enforceable amendment? Come on. And for the record, local control isn't always what it seems. I am a public school parent in Davidson County, and I am very much in support of a statewide authorizer. There are hundreds of parents who are. There are also hundreds of parents who are not. But to say the local board represents the entire community and what they want is completely inaccurate. Yes, I voted in the last school board election in my district....but my district is one vote out of nine. Local control? Please.
