RAMAPO, N.Y. -- A panel of educators who have studied the troubled East Ramapo School District is expected to recommend that a state monitor with veto power oversee the district's operation, according to lohud.com .

The recommendation, one of several suggestions expected from the panel Monday, Dec. 14 in Albany, are the result of a 4-month review of East Ramapo's finances, the story says. The panel is headed by Dennis Walcott, former New York City schools chancellor.

The panel's work is likely to rekindle disagreements between state Democrats and Republicans, who failed to reach a deal in June that could have given the state more oversight of the district, according to the article. The majority of the district's 32,000 students go to private schools, causing a divide in the community that's led to state intervention in the past.
