ATLANTA PUBLIC SCHOOLS BANS CHILD ADVOCATE AND SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATE FROM SPEAKING

Marquenta Sands Hall, executive director for APS Police Department, blatantly disregards Mr. Dyer’s constitutional rights to free speech in YouTube video

Nathaniel Dyer Not Allowed To Ask Questions

The Atlanta Public Schools (APS) System has issued a directive to the North Atlanta Parent Teacher Association to rescind an invitation to Nathaniel B. Dyer. On Tuesday, August 22nd, Mr. Dyer announced his candidacy for the APS District 7 At-Large Board member seat. On Monday, August 28th, Mr. Dyer received an invitation to participate in a Question-and- Answer session with other Board of Education candidates running in districts inclusive of North Atlanta High School. On September 19th, the invitation was rescinded because the general counsel informed the group that Dyer was not allowed on APS property including schools through December 31, 2017. The action of exclusively barring Nathaniel Dyer not only violates his right to free speech but also restricts his access from participating in the democratic process.

Freedom, as a civic value, is developed in Georgia’s Kindergarten classes through the Social Studies Georgia Standards of Excellence curriculum. Georgia’s Kindergarten students begin to develop the idea of government and good citizenship in the Social Studies Georgia Standards of Excellence.

So why is Nathaniel B. Dyer a threat to the Atlanta Public School District? Why does APS seek to deny Mr. Dyer his right to free speech? Why do they choose to defame his character? The simple answer is that Mr. Dyer has worked tirelessly to make changes to APS that benefit children. For more than 12 years, Nathaniel Dyer has consistently attended school board meetings and advocated on behalf of Atlanta children. His ultimate goal is to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to receive an equitable world-class education. An education that begins with ensuring children achieve basic foundational education goals in the areas of reading, writing, arithmetic, and critical thinking.

Nathaniel Dyer has won victories for students, parents, teachers, and the community that include:

 

Nathaniel Dyer has won victories for students, parents, teachers, and the community that include:

  1. Holding monthly neighborhood meetings and protest rallies to save 10 out of 15 schools from closure during APS redistricting plan in 2012;
  2. Rallying to restore bus services for children that resulted in the school board approving $2.8 million in transportation which included 850 bus routes, 49 new buses and 25 crossing guards;
  3. Rallying and supporting the bus drivers over a pay dispute;
  4. Successfully advocating for Superintendent Erroll Davis’ contract extension which was voted 8-1; and
  5. Rallying and successfully getting a resolution passed to revisit the closure of John F. Kennedy Middle School.

Nathaniel Dyer’s track record is evidence that he represents the voice of the community. Advocating on the behalf of students, teachers, parents, and the community is not criminal. His name should not be defamed because he holds APS board members accountable for their actions.

Included below is a link to the video documenting APS officers accosting Mr. Dyer within minutes of him sitting down at a 2016 community meeting involving school closures/mergers. You will also see Marquenta Sands Hall, Executive Director for APS Police Department, block Mr. Dyer from exercising his constitutional rights to free speech.
