Education Department Requests Rehearing on Gordon Parks Decision
The State Board of Education and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education have filed a motion to request rehearing on the decision on Gordon Parks charter school in Kansas City.
"We are requesting the rehearing in order to clear up some of the factual inaccuracies expressed in the ruling that was written by opposing counsel," said Chris L. Nicastro, commissioner of education.
The State Board voted not to renew the school's five-year charter application at its May meeting. A decision by a judge last month overturned that vote.
