After indefinitely postponing a vote in February on a $180,000 plan to recruit more minority teachers and administrators, the Bulloch County Board of Education has not made an alternative move but recently renewed the discussion. February’s proposal followed a series of meetings, over several months, by a Minority Recruitment Committee, including school administrators and community members as well as two board members. Superintendent Charles Wilson named the committee in December 2015 to study the issue, identified as a priority at a Speak Up for Education forum four years ago.
