In case you haven't heard, Lehman has been the focus of much discussion politically, and in the media. This site, as well as our wayward brethren at 19credits were mentioned in an article for an education blog, gothamschools.org. The story was then picked up by our local media outlets (the Daily News, NY Times, WCBS Television, etc). But it seems that the machinations of those looking to blight the school in the media may be more productive than they expected. We'll see just what is uncovered in Department of Education investigations, but I would hazzard to guess what is uncovered will be a cast of characters as productive as my last bowel movement.
There is a situation at our school fellow Lehman-ites. We need to think productively as to how to find solutions to an already troubling pattern of behavior. Let us put all of the foolishness aside and come to the table with solutions. Grades may or may not have been changed for the wrong reasons, this is not what we -here- should be discussing. What I would like us to discuss is, in light of the current situation, what should be the protocol on changing grades? What went wrong (as you see it) and what should have been the proper course of action?
