An article and accompanying box about the regional school accreditation agencies in the March 26 issue of Education Week contained a number of errors about the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
The box misstated the percentage of public high schools in the region with neasc accreditation, and the article misstated the number of public high schools on probation with the association. More than 95 percent of New England public high schools have NEASC accreditation; 20 are on probation.
The article also incorrectly implied that the NEASC is a member of the International Council of School Accrediting Commissions.
An article in the March 19 issue incorrectly reported that U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Barrett, D-Wis., is a co-sponsor of a bill that would create federally funded school vouchers for depressed areas. Mr. Barrett does not support the bill.
