Georgia Legal Services attorneys and others, though, have raised concerns about Henry County to Justice Department officials, who visited in March. District spokesman J.D. Hardin insists the DOJ’s visit had nothing to do with the school system’s disciplinary practices, but declined to say what was discussed.
Emails obtained by the AJC and interviews with attorneys who met with federal officials say they wanted to discuss “school climate” policies, a term often used to describe an effort to reduce disciplinary problems in a school.
