Last week, The 9th Street Journal published a story on the large and growing population of English learners in Durham Public Schools. The story was republished in Indy Week, with whom 9th Street has a content-sharing agreement, and was featured on Indy Week’s cover.
Upon publication, factual errors in the story were brought to our attention. We learned that the story misidentifies a local college student as having attended Jordan High School, which he did not. Upon further investigation, we learned that the story contains additional factual errors and as a result, we have decided to retract the story.
We deeply regret this occurrence and we sincerely apologize to the Jordan High School and Durham Public Schools communities. We also apologize to our partners at Indy Week and to our readers.
