ST. LOUIS (KTVI) -Transfer troubles in Normandy have come to a head.  The school district has now filed a lawsuit challenging Missouri’s transfer law.

The move happened just a day after the Board of Education voted to replace the Normandy school district with a new, state-controlled entity.

The district will also be dissolved.  The transfer law, which allows students in failing district to attend other districts, has been upheld by the Missouri Supreme Court twice.

    Anyone who wants to believe this, what the state is doing is keeping those kids segregated from the white kids in the county district. the law suit is about keeping those who serve on that board that governs that district from loosing their POSITIONS.

      Loose as a goose. Inefficient administrators are protesting the end to their gravy train, not that someone else might do a better job.
