  • My son has been telling me about the changes at the school. Like fights ,kids writing on the walls, gangs at the school. He told me alot of the teachers are leaving because of this. I am very concerned about this matter. Also I would like to know why did the Atlanta Public school system send CEP students to DOUGLASS HIGH?
