Maspeth High School In The News Again
Maspeth high school which has been identified for a massive cheating scandal, finds itself in the New York Post as a Dean and Math teacher was quietly removed from the school in December. The teacher was identified by the New York Post as Danny Sepulveda. According to the DOE, Mr. Sepulveda was removed for reasons unrelated to the academic fraud at the school.
According to the article by Susan Edelman, Mr. Sepulveda was identified as one of the teachers that supplied students with answers to the Regents. He was alleged to have sent a text message to another teacher and wrote the following:
“Having someone fail and not graduate HS because of a state exam that colleges never look at is more of a failure than anything else. I look at state tests as the anti-christ,” Sepulveda wrote.
In the Maspeth cheating scandal no administrators have been punished so far and no teachers who were identified as part of the cheating scandal were removed. One would think the DOE has basically closed their collective eyes to the academic fraud at Maspeth high school and the many other schools in New York City In fact, the FBI has started an investigation on the widespread academic fraud of the NYC school system as OSI and SCI has failed to seriously investigate the academic fraud issue
