May 23, 2012
Students at P.S. 31 and 257 in Brooklyn may have been improperly coached on tests

From The New York Times: Two of the highest-ranking public elementary schools in New York City are under investigation for possible irregularities on state examinations. The special commissioner for investigation, Richard J. Condon, is examining whether teachers improperly coached students during examinations at Public School 31 and Public School 257. The inquiry began after administrators and teachers at Intermediate School 318, where many of the children from the two elementary schools move on to, noticed that students' class work was worse than their fifth-grade test scores would suggest it should be.
