The Cheating Goes On

New York schools’ latest scandal is rooted in the failures of progressive education.
Like Captain Renault in Casablanca , Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña is “shocked, shocked” to discover that there’s lots of cheating in the city’s public schools. Fariña was apparently so unnerved by the New York Post’s recent reporting on this scandal that she immediately appointed a task force of “experts” to try to get to the bottom of it. Though I have never been a fan of the chancellor’s educational philosophy, I’ll offer her some free advice: ditch the experts and save the city’s beleaguered taxpayers the $5 million that the panel is expected to cost.
