Birmingham Schools to be Investigated by State

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The Alabama State Board of Education wants an investigation into the embattled leadership of the state's third largest school district.
The state board voted Thursday to launch an investigative review of the government of the Birmingham City Board of Education. The board has been mired in personal feuds between members and allegations of open meetings violations.
The city board in a Tuesday meeting made two separate motions to fire the besieged superintendent. Birmingham board members had called for the state to intervene.
State Superintendent Tommy Bice says he is concerned that important decisions can't be made because of some contentious relationships between city board members. He says the investigation will take up to two months. He adds that a state takeover is not the intent.
