      Parents in limbo due to Birmingham Board of Education battle

      Many Birmingham parents are frustrated due to the lack of action on a financial plan to save Birmingham City Schools more than $12 million dollars.{}

      Tuesday night, school board members were supposed to vote on a plan to layoff around 200 employees, but they fired Superintendent Dr. Craig Witherspoon instead, leaving the start of school in limbo.{}

      School is slated to begin August 20th, but state officials wanted to push the start date back three days to ensure staff is in place.{}

      State officials said Wednesday that school is expected to be delayed given the delays in adopting a plan to make the school system financially solvent.
