In a Dec. 16 story about Lincoln Educational Services Corp., The Associated Press reported erroneously that the company's plans to buy back 1.25 million shares include a block of 750,000 being sold by a major shareholder. The block trade of 750,000 shares is a separate transaction and not part of the 1.25 million shares being bought back by the company.
