New SIU president defends leaving Ohio university

Tuesday, 18 February 2014 11:18 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Southern Illinois University system's new president says he understands feelings of betrayal surrounding his planned departure from Ohio's Youngstown State just seven months into that job.
 
But Randy Dunn says that as a former Illinois schools chief who once worked at SIU in Carbondale, he believes critics eventually will appreciate his chance to return to where he calls his home.
 
The SIU board on Monday introduced Dunn as Glenn Poshard's successor.
 
Dunn's three-year contract at Youngstown State requires him to give 180 days notice that he's leaving that job. That would take him through mid-August, though it's unclear if that university's board will hold him to that.
 
As an Ohio state lawmaker from Youngstown, Rep. Bob Hagan, says Dunn's abrupt departure leaves that university and region hurt and disappointed.

DESE to present plans to help troubled schools

Tuesday, 18 February 2014 11:16 Published in Local News

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Officials with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, or DESE are due to make recommendations on how to improve failing school districts today. Officials have been examining six proposals.

 

One plan continues the current system of allowing students to transfer out of failing districts with the district footing the bill. Another proposal would allow students to transfer to better schools inside their own district. And yet another plan would eliminate failing districts and allow them to become independent.
