Lincoln High School has been the center of much back and forth between a city of San Diego councilmember and a San Diego County School District board member. One of the topics of debate — leadership turnover at the southeastern San Diego school.

Following the high school's director being reassigned suddenly, the San Diego Unified School District announced on Tuesday a new principal for the school: Melissa Agudelo will serve as co-principal with the current principal, Stephanie Brown.

Will Huntsberry, education reporter at Voice of San Diego, has been following the back and forth and the recent changes. He joined Midday Edition on Thursday to explain the high school's leadership changes.
