Efforts to Oust ESL School Board Pres. Will Continue


East St. Louis, Ill. – Efforts to remove East St. Louis's Board of Education President continue, even though the board that first tried to get rid of him is now disbanded.

A state panel that oversaw school finances until recently first tried to get rid of Lonzo Greenwood because of his role negotiating a secret contract.

But the state Board of Education say it will not continue to press for Greenwood's removal. The fight includes a lawsuit that the East St. Louis School District filed to keep Greenwood on the board.
