Sophia Hollander of The Wall Street Journal reports Horace Mann Airs a Case of Sabotage Director of College Counseling Says Untrue Information About Student Sent to Schools

Students may sometimes fantasize about knifing competitors in the back, but fascinating and depressing that someone actually did it this year.  Horace Mann’s college counselor transparently addressed the situation in a letter sent to the student body.  Naturally, in this day and age, his letter immediately hit the Internet, undermining Horace Mann’s reputation.

Yet despite all of Horace Mann’s recent negative press, many parents I work with are more interested in this school than ever.  The school’s reputation for academic rigor is parentnip.
