I can't even imagine dealing with entitled parents at those type of schools. The counselor was at least smart in his wording that he told USC that the father had "visited" with him that morning and affirmed for him that the younger daughter is truly a coxswain. Basically saying he was going by the father's word on this.... I think it would be different if the high school counselor was falsifying info, but if the aggressive parents are insisting on some lie and making a scene, how much vetting, short of accusing the parents of outright lying, is on the high school to push back or prove that the fake club doesn't exist? I bet you are right that some higher up likely said to drop it.
