Battles Between Administrator And Board Cast A Pall Over Efforts To Revitalize Head Start Programs

An agency whose mission is to help the poor is dealing with yet another controversy.

The board of the Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland voted back in October to terminate its president and CEO Jacklyn Chisholm. 

But she says the vote wasn't valid and is suing the board. In the meantime, she continues to show up for work. 

Just this week, the agency's general counsel resigned and tomorrow the board will meet, once again to vote on a proposal to oust her. 
Ideastream's Darrielle Snipes has more on why the board wants her gone and why she is staying.
