From CNN.com (via Betsy):
A newly appointed state board started running the St. Louis school
district Friday and asked for the community’s help in trying to improve
its schools’ performance.
The state had voted in March to strip
the district’s accreditation because of unmet academic and financial
standards, and a judge ruled Thursday the takeover was constitutional.
three members of the appointed board pledged to seek input from
students, teachers, residents and members of the elected school board
that still remains, though it now has no power.
If you’re in the St. Louis area, or even if you aren’t, what are your thoughts on these events? How would you change things to improve the district’s performance?
