A Teacher Grows Disillusioned After a ‘Fail’ Becomes a ‘Pass’ - New York Times: "Mr. Lampros’s introduction to the high school’s academic standards proved a fitting preamble to a disastrous year. It reached its low point in late June, when Arts and Technology’s principal, Anne Geiger, overruled Mr. Lampros and passed a senior whom he had failed in a required math course."
The dumb thing is that this girl will suffer most over time and society will have to bear that burden. She is not likely to reach her full potential.
It may be even worse then we fear. At least the graduation rate is still good a that school.
