ACLU says district in Michigan falsified student records

The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan is alleging a that an administrator in the Highland Park (Mich.) district falsified records to make it appear as though students were receiving individualized instruction. The Detroit News says the ACLU made the accusation in court documents in a class-action lawsuit against the state and Highland Park Schools over students’ performance in reading. In the documents, the civil rights group contends that an administrator asked teaching aides at Highland Park Renaissance Academy High School to backdate daily service logs to make it appear that students were receiving individualized assistance when, in fact, they were not.
