Once again, Haskell delays meeting with newspaper to discuss manipulating test scores

Haskell Indian Nations University officials have again cancelled a Journal-World interview with president Chris Redman to discuss academic violations within the school’s athletics department. A similar meeting scheduled for last week was also cancelled.

Stephen Prue, Haskell spokesman, said Redman asked that the interview be postponed until the Journal-World receives responses to several Freedom of Information Act requests filed with the Bureau of Indian Affairs regarding the violations.

The violations came to light after an anonymous letter to the Journal-World, which prompted Haskell officials to issue a news release that provided vague information about a federal investigation into falsified student-athlete ACT scores at the school.

The release stated that employees were “disciplined for manipulation of three other student transcripts.” The release did not mention which sports were involved.

A more detailed description of the violations has not been provided, despite multiple requests.

Wonder if a local developer was at the end of that FIOA. Sounds like something those money-grubbing MEN (!) would do.

place "agenda" where it needs to be, at the end of the sentence.

I would completely eliminate any meeting with LJWorld.

I once hit the AP wires on a story that went out all over the country. LJWorld, of course published it. NOT so happy about that. So when they wanted to do a story on me twice in the ten last years, I said, "No way!" For I fully knew about the Simon Slant, so at play at this particular story. Remember the LMH Feud with LJWorld where Simon's brother was NOT hired by LMH

More power to Haskell!! I praise them for saying no to a slanted, agenda-laden paper with no real heart or generousity towards the people in this state if it isn't within their Columbia-loving (health care), arse-smooching, developer-prostatutes. Misspells intentional.

Everyone should tell LJWORLD to go hang.

Where is Tushi... I would have bet he would have blamed someone else other than Haskell for this.

Must be a very slow news day. Do Lawrence folks REALLY care about this?

At least the headline isn't passive aggressive at all.

I'm sure the pro Manifest Destiny people will have a field day with this.
