Setting Out-of-Boundaries

Correction: The Wire strayed out of bounds in analyzing recent changes in the D.C. schools out-of-boundary transfer policy. It appeared from a reading of the old policy and the amended version that Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee had replaced principals as the final authority for such transfers. In fact, Rhee has always had the final say. The amendment merely tinkered with terminology, replacing "Superintendent," the pre-Fenty title for head of the school system, with Chancellor.

Not suprisingly, rhee probably did not know the school system had a transfer and out of boundary office. She also probably did not know that their office verified residency if their was a doubt and that school officials were bound by decisions made by this office.
