Where Does that Buck Stop?

The Daily News offers more detail on the short piece I posted the other day.

The UFT has stopped the science teachers involved from speaking with the DoE. Good move.

So who will Mike "Accountability" Bloomberg blame for this? Will it be supervisors who told the teachers to change grades? Can the teachers prove this was done?

Or will the teachers take the rap entirely, a la Abu Ghraib, where no higher-ups got more than a slap on the hand?

One thing's for sure--it isn't Mayor Mike's fault, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with the mania over standardized testing. Despite his very public request that we judge him on school progress, we've all come to learn that nothing is his fault, or Chancellor Joel Klein's fault either.

It appears they're congenitally incapable of error.
