John Deasy has faulted the leaders of the Lake Balboa campus for allegedly mishandling student expulsions and services to disabled students and for failing to respond adequately to allegations of racial discrimination. School officials said they are looking into the allegations, but are aware of no major problems.

In a sternly worded decision, a federal judge on Tuesday upheld the expulsions of six students for fighting during a high school football game--saying that despite help from the Rev. Jesse Jackson and a team of lawyers, they had failed to prove their rights were violated by the school district's policy against violence. U.S. District Judge Michael McCuskey found that the Decatur, Ill., district "did not act illegally, improperly or deny the students their constitutional rights."
