Meeting held to discuss troubled district

HOUSTON That was the possibility discussed during a community meeting last night in northeast Houston. The Texas Education Agency has taken over North Forest because the district is millions of dollars in the hole and has had historically low academic performance.

The agency is waiting for the Department of Justice to approve the replacement of current school board members with the state's own appointed ones. But some in the district say the real problem is with the superintendent.

"Every time we get one in there that is working, someone in there that is working, they get rid of him," said parent Alicia Jackson

Current board members say they are appealing the state's plan.
