Clayton County public schools have often been in trouble. In February of 2008, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools recommended the district's accreditation be revoked, and the school system lost its accreditation in the summer after failing to meet stringent guidelines. The lost accreditation affects about 50,000 students registered in the school system. The school system is now trying to get its accredidation back. Return for the latest updates on the schools' efforts to set themselves straight.
