Superintendent finalist forced to withdraw after ABC 57 News investigation
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- One of the three finalists in the running for South Bend school superintendent dropped out today.
Former Muncie superintendent Dr. Eric king was forced to withdraw after ABC 57 News aired a news report last night, an investigation that uncovered alarming details about King's time as superintendent in Muncie.
Now, school board members are speaking out saying this should have never happened. Members say they are upset that school board President Roger Parent made the decision without meeting or conferring with the board first.
"It was a harsh decision, it was a rash decision. Unfortunately, it was a decision that will affect a person," says senior school board member Dawn Jones.
