Highlands County school board members were called on the carpet during their meeting this week for what was termed "selective enforcement" of some of their policies. Resident Stacy Hinson questioned the board about an employee who "failed to disclose pertinent information" on their job application – but apparently was given the post.

Board members had no response to the questions.
