COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Representatives of Youngstown city schools have gone to court to try to delay the implementation of a state law that puts an appointed chief executive in control of the district.

The (Youngstown) Vindicator (https://bit.ly/1h8r1NY ) reports school representatives argued Tuesday in favor of an injunction that would block a measure passed quickly by the Ohio Legislature just before its summer recess.

The plan was kept secret from the public until it was pushed through both chambers of the state Legislature on a single day. It drew immediate criticism from many in Youngstown.

Without the injunction, the legislation will take effect next month, with a new Youngstown schools CEO appointed before the end of the year. The new schools chief would have sweeping power to reshape the troubled district.
