Democratic leaders in the Georgia House of Representatives called today for an independent investigation into problems with state tests that led to high failure rates among Georgia students.
House Minority Leader DuBose Porter said today there were early indications that students would struggle with the tests but state school Superintendent Kathy Cox did nothing.
‘‘What did Kathy Cox know and when did she know it,’’ Porter, of Dublin, asked at a state Capitol news conference.
An outside probe is unlikely by the Republican administration of Gov. Sonny Perdue. His office referred calls to Cox.
‘‘What did Kathy Cox know and when did she know it“. Dubose Porter needs a new line. That one is passed its prime and not very original.
