Justice for Montravious Thomas

To be delivered to MCSD Board of Education

Petition Statement

We seek to have the Muscogee County Board of Education take a vote, to ask all parties identified in OCGA Section 35-3-8.1, to request the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to investigate potential wrongdoing within our local public school system.
There are currently 626 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

While attending Edgewood Student Services, Montravious Thomas was slammed on the floor, as a result his leg had to be amputated. No medical personnel was contacted to have him checked. He was unable to walk and had to be carried to the bus, which was shown on a video that has been released. His mother took him to the emergency room and he had to be air-lifted to Atlanta due to the severity of his injury. The person that slammed him was a contract worker, however, that should not negate accountability. It is important that parents know that their children will be safe and cared for while at school. The members of the Board of Education are our representatives and are to act in the best interest of their constituents. In this case it would be to request the GBI conduct an investigation of Montravious Thomas' injury.
