DOE Ignores Academic Fraud
Councilman Robert Holden has asked the federal government to investigate the ramped grade fraud at the New York City schools. The clearly frustrated Councilman has tried to convince DOE officials, including Chancellor Richard Carranza to seriously investigate the academic fraud but was ignored. I have written many posts on the widespread academic fraud and you can find those posts under "academic fraud".
Why doesn't the DOE investigate or punish schools for academic fraud? Simple, the DOE rather have a higher graduation rate and an illusion that academic progress is being made when the truth is far different. The DOE allows schools to cheat by ignoring the use of easy credits, blended learning, and allowing principals to require that teachers pass as much as 85% of their students.
Will the Federal government investigate the academic fraud? I doubt it but if they do, it will be easy to prove. Read James Eterno's ICEUFT blog for the actual letter to the U.S. Attorney..
