LIVE: Judge weighing evidence in BISD hearing
A judge in Austin tonight is weighing the evidence in a hearing that will determine if the state takes over the Beaumont school district.
BISD is seeking a temporary injunction to block the education commissioner's plan to boot out the school board and appoint a board of managers and replace the superintendent.
The commissioner says BISD cannot manage its money and has lost the public trust.
KFDM's Leslie Rangel covered the hearing. She joined KFDM News live from Austin to share some of the testimony and talk about the atmosphere in the courtroom.
