Supreme Court ruling affects local school districts

The recent Missouri Supreme Court ruling that unaccredited school districts must pay to send its students to accredited districts if the student wants to go, has districts throughout the area wondering what will happen.  The case involved students in St. Louis (unaccredited) who wanted to go to Clayton (accredited).  St. Louis could be devastated if all students decide to leave.  County schools don't know if they will have overflow enrollment.  An attorney involved in the case said there was a bill in the Missouri House of Representatives with wording that would have prevented this situation by clarifying the criteria for the admission or rejection of nonresident pupils, along with an appeal process.  Wonder why that legislation, HB 1678  didn't go anywhere?
