The Columbus City Schools board voted unanimously last night to cut three principals involved in the districts data-scrubbing scandal, despite last minute appeals from its constituents. Alison Holm reports.
The principal of Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in Columbus says she suspended a 10-year-old boy for three days last week for pretending his finger was a gun and pointing it at another student's head.
The Columbus City School Board is scheduled to vote on a raft of school closures at tomorrow's board meeting, but it looks like Independence High School and Siebert Elementary School may get a reprieve.
In his official report on the data scrubbing scandal in Columbus City Schools, State auditor David Yost says the district deliberately - and possibly criminally - changed grades, erased absences, and manipulated enrollment figures in order to make the district look better.
