Myers Park Follow-up: News 14 Carolina

I have added News 14 Carolina to the blogroll/links section (located to your immedate right on your screen) because their school news section seems to be comprehensive. This is no exception.

Many weeks ago, I reported on Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s Myers Park H.S. as it related to a possible dropout scandal. Now comes word that the final report on this situation has been released by CLT-Meck school officials. See this News 14 Carolina story.

An excerpt:

CHARLOTTE — As promised, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has released a 125-page report detailing an investigation into Myers Park High School and allegations the school coerced students into dropping out.

Large portions of the report are blacked out in an effort to protect the privacy of students involved.

Last month, CMS officials released their findings, saying their investigation found that despite some errors, there was no evidence the school pushed students out or falsified data to reduce dropout rates.

The Myers Park complaints, based partly on confidential student records, appeared in the Charlotte Post in August and got national attention when Time magazine posted an article on its Web site in March.

E.C. 🙂
