It took eight years and $1.2 million. But Salt Lake City School District is now free from federal scrutiny for failing to properly educate non-English speaking students.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights ended its monitoring of the district, resolving a 2001 discrimination complaint which alleged the district had too few teachers trained to teach English as a Second Language (ESL).

The news was welcomed by Salt Lake Superintendent McKell Withers as being due recognition for a "difficult, but enjoyable journey."

For civil rights officials, it marks the end of an era.
"One day," he said. "We will look back at the mass-production model of education with horror the same way [modern medicine] looks at bleeding and leeches."


I don't know about you guys, but as far as I'm concerned this invasion represents the epitomy of "bleeding and leeches", but I digress.
