School alters transcripts

Fort Lee guidance counselors altered transcripts to get their students into top schools. This was done over a period of several years, without the knowledge of the students.

There is a special BOE work session tonight on personnel and legal matters; presumably, little will be discussed publicly.

Re: School alters transcripts

We should just give everyone a college degree, magna cum laude. That way everyone will be equal.

Re: School alters transcripts

What's the B of E going to do re-call these kids from college or their careers. The only reason this is a story is because it's a public school, this sort of thing goes on in private school all the time albeit a little more slick and structured.

Re: School alters transcripts

While qualifying an engineer as an expert witness at Edgewater zoning board this evening, Mark Sokolich, mayor of Fort Lee for those not acquainted with him, confirmed the witness hadn't graduated from Fort Lee High School in the last five years. Glad he can keep a sense of humor about it.

Re: School alters transcripts

I always ask my doctors where they went to med school, now I have to ask where they went to high school.

Re: School alters transcripts

While not condoning this behavior, one has to ask if the students did well at college. If so, it does not matter that their grades were doctored.

I think what happens when they get into the better college is that they end up being C students. (shrug)
