SELMA, AL (WSFA) -
An intervention! The Alabama State Department of Education's Board of Education voted
unanimously to takeover the Selma City School district.
Selma's City School Superintendent Gerald Shirley witnessed the
vote but was in no mood to talk about it after he walked out.
Shirley only offered 'I have no comment,' and again had 'no
comment' when pressed by WSFA 12 New reporter Bryan Henry.
The board accepted State Superintendent Dr. Tommy Bice's
recommendation to intervene, a recommendation that comes months after a
blistering report showing evidence of academic problems, guidelines not being
followed and a Selma High School teacher allgedly having sex with a student.
"We will be looking at institutional control and secondly we
have real questions about what's being taught and what's being learned,"
