Gov. Nathan Deal announced July 24 that chief administrative law Judge Maxwell Woods has sustained the suspensions of two DeKalb County school board members who petitioned for their reinstatement earlier this year.
The judge ruled that both Sarah Copelin-Woods and Pamela Speaks failed to show that their presence on the DeKalb school board would improve the ability of the local school system to retain or re-attain its accreditation, as required by state law. The rulings in the cases of two other suspended board members who petitioned for reinstatement–Eugene Walker and Jesse “Jay” Cunningham–will be determined at a later date.
