ACLU investigates Lee



A national probe of the way schools treat minorities and students with disabilities has made its way to Lee County.

The ACLU Racial Justice Project has raised concerns about the way schools use their alternative schools and has discovered some hot spots through its research. That's what brought its team to Lee, the Fort Myers News-Press reports.

Apparently, the group is conducting similar work in a handful of other Florida districts, too. But the paper didn't have any details. Do you?
