State Intervenes in Selma City Schools


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom-- The state board of education votes to intervene in Selma City Schools.

The educational intervention will begin immediately. It was recommended by state superintendent Tommie Bice and passed unanimously by the state board of education.

Bice says the intervention is necessary to address the problems uncovered by a state investigation that found sexual and academic misconduct in the school system.

He says the state will meet with Selma school officials next week and his leadership team will be in place by the end of the month.
