As the Lincoln High Turns

The saga goes on.  The staffers who "blew the whistle" say they're being retaliated against.  Indeed, a lawsuit's a pretty serious response.  The district says the three violated privacy laws laid out in FERPA--the federal law protecting student rights.

And they may have...I don't know.  But I do know it sure appears that the district is emphasizing that and minimizing the issue of whether the Lincoln administrators were, in fact, steering underperforming students out of Lincoln (so that Lincoln's graduation rate and test passing rate would improve).

It looks, in fact, like the district wants to silence people who could make trouble.
