Vote to remove Missouri Commissioner of Education and install charter school supporter set for next week

A vote to remove State Commissioner of Education Margie Vandeven is expected to take place during a session of the State Board of Education.

Gov. Eric Greitens has appointed five of the eight board members and is pushing to replace Vandeven with a charter school proponent.

As noted in earlier Turner Report posts, Greitens received more than $700,000 from charter school supporters, including $100,000 from members of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos' family during his 2016 election campaign.
