Community gathers to pray for Youngstown City Schools


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The power of prayer– community members gather in downtown Youngstown praying for students in the Mahoning Valley and Youngstown City Schools.

All races and religions were welcome for the Sunday prayer in front of the Federal Courthouse in downtown Youngstown.

Organizers hope prayers will help ease the growing tensions about a CEO taking over Youngstown City Schools.

“We’re not here presenting any political faction, we’re not here representing one side or the other, what we’re here to do, the whole theme of it was what about our children,” said Dr. Rosie Taylor.

The Youngstown Board of Education has sued the state saying the Youngstown Plan violates the state Constitution and was enacted illegally.
