The Decatur City School Board today refused to adopt measures required by a law the state Legislature passed in 2012.

To meet the deadline, Decatur school board members held a special meeting this morning.
Some called the bill insulting, saying their own ethics and the system’s existing rules already require them to do things that are tougher than the state requirements.
“This is a backdoor way to put power in Montgomery and I don’t like it,” board member Dwight Jett said.
