On the other hand the St. Louis County Schools…..

…has enough money to fight a Court decision that went against them. They want to make it OK for School Boards to sell school referendums to the public and dispense with facts:

[Superintendent Theresa] Strong also reported that the lawsuit filed by Tower Mayor Steve Abrahamson and former clerk Tim Kotzian against the district would be getting a hearing by the Minnesota Supreme Court. That lawsuit charges that ISD 2142 board members were promoting the $78.8 million building referendum. They were, apparently, supposed to not take sides. This lawsuit is getting statewide attention since if it were upheld, it would be difficult for districts to get any referendums passed and could adversely affect education in the state.

I’m not sure if this was from the School Board’s minutes or a news story.
