Ala. school board reviews report on Bledsoe grades

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- The Birmingham school board is reviewing an investigation into the grades of former Kentucky basketball star Eric Bledsoe.

The board went into executive session about the report during a meeting Friday afternoon. It wasn't clear whether members would release the findings publicly since a board lawyer says the report includes information covered by privacy laws.

Questions have been raised about high school grades that allowed Bledsoe to qualify with the NCAA to play at Kentucky. Bledsoe left the Wildcats after one season and is now a rookie with the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers.

A private law firm investigated Bledsoe's grades and sent its report to the Birmingham school board earlier this week. The results could be sent to the NCAA.
