The entire Savannah-Chatham County Board of Education is facing the public at a town hall meeting this evening at the Whitney Administrative Complex at 2 Laura Street in Savannah.

For the first time since former superintendent John O'Sullivan resigned and controversy ensued, the full board will face its critics. Board members targeted in a recall effort will have the chance to answer questions, though many have remained silent while their names and reputations have been attacked.

One of their biggest critics, Rev. Leonard Small, has helped organize the recall. He doesn't think this meeting will solve much of anything. "The most telling indicator of future events is past behavior," he told us. "And so far, I've not heard or seen anything from the school board that would make me think that they're not in denial as to how severe this circumstance is."

The meeting got underway at 6pm tonight. We'll have the latest tonight on THE News at 11.
