Appeals court upholds unprecedented ouster of board members
An appeals court has upheld the unprecedented ouster of three school board members in a west-central Ohio school district.
The upheaval at the Madison-Plains district in London followed a nationally televised school bus beating and a high school football coach sex scandal. The 12th District Court of Appeals in Middletown ruled unanimously today in favor of a judge's decision to remove the board members for allegations of misconduct and open meetings violations. The three-judge panel says the board members placed their own interests and the interests of others above those of students and the district.
The Ohio School Boards Association says the ouster of three board members at once is unprecedented.
