MORGANTON, N.C. — An accreditation group has placed a North Carolina county’s four high schools on probation, saying school board members have created a chaotic atmosphere that makes teaching and learning hard.

The News Herald of Morganton reported Wednesday that Burke County’s four high schools will be on probationary accreditation for the new school year. Accreditation from the Southern
Association of Colleges and Schools is a key for students who wish to attend college.

The group says the blame for the “chaos” in the school district belongs to the board of education and its members. It says the panel has violated its own standards as well as accreditation standards.

The Burke County high schools on probation are East Burke, Freedom, Draughn and Patton.
