TOTAL Recall

In Tuolumne County, California, students have spearheaded a campaign to recall the entire school board. They collected 30% more than the required signatures, and the recall notice is slated to be served in the next few days.

California officials cannot recall a time that an entire school board was recalled. The district is politically troubled, and has had a high turnover of superintendents and board officials lately.

You can read the linked article for details on why the kiddos started the recall petition. It has to do with the firing of a math teacher based on plagiarism charges from "undisclosed" sources relating to the teacher's certification work. Seems really odd.
