CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — Clayton County Commission Chairman Eldrin Bell told Channel 2’s Tom Jones the Clayton County schools have indeed lost accreditation.
The 50,000-student school system is the first in the nation to lose accreditation since 1969, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools announced.
No accreditation means students will have a tougher time getting into some colleges and universities. They may also have difficulty obtaining scholarships.
Who’s looking out for the children? Not the Clayton County School Board.
