Controversy over Lincoln High's dismal math scores

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - There's controversy over Lincoln High School's dismal math scores.

The school's math scores were at five percent proficiency, which means only five percent of the students attending the school are proficient in math.

School board trustee Sheila Jackson says part of Superintendent Bill Kowba's plan to improve the scores included hiring a new principal, which was done.

The other part was to revamp the math department, which Jackson says has not happened.

"If (Kowba) cannot successfully transition a low performing school, let alone one math department then he needs to resign from a unified school district," Jackson said.

A spokeswoman told News 8 that scores were up overall for the entire district, but had no comments on Jackson's accusations.
