Flowers appeals to Illinois board of education

July 24, 2009 On July 10, Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office served Charles Flowers with notice that it planned to pull his certificates. His office was raided on July 1.

A state audit found his office was $1 million in debt and that office money was used to buy plane tickets for family members, among other improprieties.

On Thursday, he appealed to the Illinois State Board of Education.

Without the certificates, Flowers cannot continue to serve as the regional superintendent.
