Flint school board removes top leaders

The Flint school board has removed the superintendent and two other senior officials. The board's president announced Tuesday that Bilal Tawwab, assistant superintendent Shawn Merriweather and the district's lawyer have been placed on leave. No reasons were disclosed, although the superintendent had said he didn't want to keep his job beyond the next school year. Flint school board president Diana Wright says she and her colleagues want to immediately find the next leader.
