ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Sharp criticism from a Dougherty County School Board candidate against her opponent.
Susie Ealum held a news conference Monday blasting Geraldine West Hudley's record as Principal at Radium Middle School. Ealum says Radium Middle was the lowest-performing middle school in the county during Hudley's last five years there. She claims a majority of students failed standardized tests in science, social studies, math, and writing.
"I'm here today to state the facts,” said Susie Ealum, Dougherty County School Board Candidate. “My opponent is going around telling the entire community that while she was Principal at Radium Middle School she turned the school around. That is far, far from the facts."
Hudley is planning a news conference of her own on Tuesday. The two are facing off in next week's Democratic primary for the at-large school board seat.
