The Department of Ed is investigating a report that dozens of students at Herbert Lehman High School were allowed to graduate after receiving credit for courses they failed — or didn't even take. A group of teachers are accusing principal Janet Saraceno, who didn't comment, on trying to boost graduation levels in order to receive a $25,000 bonus. [GothamSchools]
