Jury selection began yesterday for the trial of an Illinois teen.

McQueen will face three murder charges when his trial begins later this week.

Supporters say the change would give the state's nearly 300 local school boards more flexibility to hire a business leader or someone else they believe would best fill their needs.
Opponents worry that the state would be lowering standards by allowing superintendents without any classroom experience and that an effective school superintendent needed to understand what teachers face in their classrooms.
The bill now goes to Republican Gov. Mike Pence for consideration.
