Chester Upland School Wants Judge to Reject State Takeover

The troubled Chester Upland School District is asking a judge to reject a petition to put the district in the hands of a state receiver.

An attorney for Chester Upland told the judge on Friday the the recovery plan would hurt special needs students and shutdown two better performing schools.

Under the plan, class size would increase and teachers would be laid off.

Attorney George Dawson says the district is not financially distressed and calls the petition "arbitrary."

A ruling is expected in 10 days.
