  • John Barge averts further trouble for the time being.

In response to a filed complaint, Georgia Schools Superintendent John Barge has taken a step back from his adamant, outspoken stance against the proposed charter school amendment.

Earlier in the week, CL reported that private attorney Glenn Delk had requested an emergency meeting from the state Board of Education — claiming that Barge, Fulton County Schools Superintendent Robert Avossa, and Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Erroll Davis had improperly used taxpayer resources to lobby against the charter school amendment.
