Dekalb Georgia– School closings are back on the table in DeKalb Georgia.

The majority of the schools on the proposed closures are in the south end of the county, which is home primarily to African-American families. Board chairman Tom Bowen insisted the schools were chosen based on empty seats, not race or academics.

“South DeKalb is where most of the under population is,” Bowen told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “However, we took a countywide approach this time to push some of the overcrowding to the south end too.”

But the task force ran into parental opposition, political posturing and internal divides that undermined its many hours of work. It seems likely this new list of closures will provoke similar public outcries and political battling.
