Arizona Schools Superintendent Diane Douglas took her fight for power to court Friday morning. The embattled Douglas is suing the board, insisting that that she, can hire and fire employees. Douglas was terse to reporters leaving a court hearing.
The Board of Education argues that it determines the fate of employees, not the Superintendent. The two sides clashed earlier this year as Douglas fired two board officials and locked them out of their offices. Governor Doug Ducey then ordered them reinstated. The judge is taking the lawsuit under advisement. State Board of Education President Greg Miller says Douglas wants to overstep her bounds in trying to control board employees.
