NAACP Urges School Board to Resolve Probation Crisis

They admit there are concerns, but the Savannah branch of the NAACP says the school board and superintendent need to solve the probation crisis before they consider any leadership changes.

Chapter president Prince Jackson says if current superintendent John O'Sullivan leaves before the system comes off probation, it would send the wrong message to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

"From what we know, the SACS problem with the board is interference by board members," Jackson said. "Somebody needs to tell those board members you can't interfere in the schools. That's SACS' biggest problem with the board."

Jackson says the system's making progress and they shouldn't undermine the process, but have to correct the problem as soon as possible.
