ATLANTA - A handful of parents greeted the ousted former principal of North Atlanta High with applause Tuesday morning when he showed up Atlanta Public School headquarters.
Mark Mygrant came to file a formal Open Records Request asking about an anonymous teacher's alleged claims of racism against two of his former administrators.
Mygrant believes that's why he was suddenly dismissed last Friday and several administrators transferred, one month before the retired interim principal was to have been replaced anyway.
"I would have gladly put the keys under the mat and rode off into the sunset and I was prepared to do that until I heard that other administrators were taken down by this," he said.
He and his supporters insist the allegations are unfounded and shameful.
"I truly believe that it stems from the very highest up; there might be even board involvement and that it's just political greed gone wild," Mygrant added.
