NAACP: Stop the School Board Recall

Stop the recall! That's the message from the Savannah chapter of the NAACP to groups trying to oust Savannah-Chatham school board members.

Today, local president Dr. Prince Jackson pleaded with political action groups to dismiss recall efforts until the school district is off SACS probation. He says board members should be focused on improving education, not on saving themselves.

"Either way, it is a lose-lose situation," he said. "If the recall wins or loses, the students will be the ones who suffer if the recall continues."

The plea comes just a day after Rev. Leonard Small told WTOC the recall effort against District 1 board member SuSu Cox has been delayed. The group needs more time to get a list of registered voters in her district.
