Another D. :-D

A, B, C: Comparing "officials" with "districts". Wrong!

E: "they" is ambiguous.

I chose D, but still wonder whether "those" is to refer to "Officials" or "public schools"
Anyone please help clarify!

Hi,
THOSE would refer to OFFICIALS here.. both grammatically and logically
if you look at public schools, it is not even an independent term but as a possessive noun of Atlanta..
so in a way it is -- Officials in public schools of Atlanta, like those in many districts..
