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.
