Georgia senior assistant attorney general Stefan Ritter has demanded an explanation from the Clayton County School Board regarding recent allegations that they illegally closed meetings. During those meetings the hiring of temporary superintendent John Thompson was discussed, who it has now been revealed can take up to 45% of his contracted paid time on vacation. Yes, that’s 45%. Smooth move, guys.
[UPDATE]: The AJC is now reporting that “James E. Bostic Jr. and William “Brad” Bryant, two state Board of Education members appointed to help Clayton, announced this morning they would no longer work with the Clayton County School Board.”
