Teacher arrested at south county middle school

   Charges are expected Wednesday against middle school teacher accused of having inappropriate contact with a former student.  

   St. Louis County Police arrested the male teacher Tuesday at Sperreng Middle School.  His name hasn't been released.  

   Police say the alleged incidents date back to 1996.  The victim reportedly came forward this summer with allegations.

   Sperreng Middle School is in the Lindbergh School District in south St. Louis County.

   The new Common Core education standards are meeting local resistance before they've even been implemented in Missouri.

   About 150 people in the Lindbergh School District attended an informational meeting held last night.  But the state education official was heckled while she tried to explain the new standards.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Maureen Clancy-May was met with calls to "tell the truth" and questions about using kids as a science experiment.  

   Missouri is one of 45 states that have adopted the Common Core standard, a set of national goals for reading, writing and math skills.  

   Many at last night's meeting wanted to know why the state Legislature wasn't involved in the decision to adopt the standard.  

   Legislatures in several states, including Missouri, are now debating a repeal.
