Education Commissioner Denies Group's Request For Role In Takeover Plan

 Rhode Island Education Commissioner Angelica  Infante-Green is denying a request for a legal role in the state takeover of Providence public schools. A group of parents, students, and other community members filed a motion with the state education department to be added as a party to the order to intervene, joining the Providence School Board, the superintendent, City Council, and mayor. Infante-Green ruled against the motion at a hearing on Friday but gave assurance that the community will have involvement in the plan to turn around the school district.
