Wellston schools sue to block state takeover

By AP/KWMU

St. Louis – An attorney for a suburban St. Louis school district asked a judge Thursday to block the state from taking control.

The Missouri state Board of Education appointed a panel to run the Wellston Schools after declining to re-accredit the district.

But the district says the state wrongly questioned improved test score data and should have restored accreditation.
