"Education" in Harlem

You may have thunk this was going on, but never had the proof.

Well, here it is:

Last month, Principal Bennett Lieberman sent off a stern memo to teachers.

"If you are not passing more than 65 percent of your students in a class, then you are not designing your expectations to meet their abilities, and you are setting your students up for failure, which, in turn, limits your success as a professional."

IIRC, the same sort of thing occurred in Rockford, IL., in the last 90 days or so. Slightly different facts/circumstances, same overall message.
