The Alabama Board of Education accepted a report Wednesday that found five people, including a state school board member, conspired to keep a leading candidate from being chosen as state superintendent last year. An anonymous letter send to the board in July said Jefferson County Schools Superintendent Craig Pouncey plagiarized his dissertation and got state employees to write it. This came as Pouncey was under consideration for state superintendent which ultimately went to Michael Sentance. The report is a boost for Pouncey who denied the allegations and filed a lawsuit over them. We talk about the situation with Alabama Media Group columnist John Archibald.
