Second Boston headmaster under scrutiny

The acting headmaster of Madison Park Vocational Technical High School in Boston was placed on administrative leave Wednesday amid a federal investigation of his alleged role in a multiple-state credit fraud ring.

Queon Jackson, 39, of ­Milton is the second Boston school headmaster to spark controversy about alleged criminal activities in less than a year. Last summer, School Superintendent Carol R. ­Johnson came under fire for taking no disciplinary action against the co-headmaster of the John D. O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science after learning he was briefly jailed for punching and choking his wife.
