Clarifications

January 07, 2003

An article in Sunday's editions of The Sun that reported that the Westminster Rescue Mission has converted its homeless shelter into an alcohol-rehabilitation facility should have stated that the mission keeps a reduced number of beds for emergency shelter. The mission provides three days of shelter to homeless men who have the option to stay longer if they are willing to join the rehab program.

In an article last week about the reaction of Nebraska officials to a new national education law, The Sun did not fully explain how the federal government identified low-performing schools last summer. Every state had to give federal officials a list of schools that failed to meet state academic standards. The federal government, without naming those schools, then reported the number of schools on each state's list that performed below standards.
