Report: Hempstead H.S. teachers inflated grades
The New York State Education Department has released a scathing audit that found Hempstead teachers inflated grades from failing to passing on a massive scale.
According to a new report from the state Regents, more than 2,000 grades were changed for nearly 1,300 Hempstead High School students last year. The audit found only 8 percent of those changes could be reasonably explained.
