I am in hopes that the board will address the central issue of how can we better the quality of education in all APS schools which should be the main focus, not the demographic survey.

APS needs to strongly consider expanding Beecher Hills Elementary. Not only does it offer the community a plausible option for academic rigor but will offer options to Atlanta newcomers looking for a great neighborhood with quality cluster schools. Our community will grow stagnate without these types of incentives.

I totally agree with this! APS needs to focus on strongly supporting and giving their energies to the schools who are under enrolled and under performing.
