Community reaction to Selma City Schools takeover

Posted: Updated:

Community members are reacting today in Selma after the Alabama State Department of Education voted to takeover the Selma City School district.

There is a sense that the takeover vote was not a surprise, but also not necessarily seen as a bad thing for the long term.

Bryan Henry talked with a business owner, a parent and an economic leader on their thoughts about the intervention and will share their thoughts in WSFA 12 News' evening reports.

The Selma City School district becomes the fourth school system to be taken over by the state in two years.
