Over the weekend, the New York Times reported the FBI is investigating the T.M. Landry College Preparatory School. If the name sounds familiar, it’s the private school in Louisiana that boasts of how many minority and underprivileged students it gets into top colleges.
This FBI investigation is separate from the by the Louisiana State Police. Alas, that one is still ongoing. According to the article, the FBI is investigating allegations of not only transcript fraud but also physical and emotional abuse. Apparently, the school informed investigators it lost student scores after the allegations became public. In conclusion, while we believe in the concept of innocent until proven guilty, that seems like a “smoking gun” to us.
