(MyFoxBoston.com) – There are new details in an email scandal at Harvard. School administrators are now saying secret email searches about a massive cheating scandal were broader than first acknowledged.
Last year, 125 students were forced to withdraw from the school for cheating on a final exam.
In September, Harvard administrators conducted a search of 16 resident deans' email accounts to find out who leaked the information to the press. Originally, Dean Evelynn Hammonds said administrators conducted a one-time search of administrative accounts. But according to the Harvard Crimson, Hammonds told staff Tuesday that she also authorized a second round of email searches, which included personal Harvard email accounts.
