New Mexico Grade Influence Peddling: Case Closed

You may remember I posted about the Albuquerque, NM case where a senior's grade was changed, allowing them to graduate. Completely unrelated to the grade change was the fact that the student's father was a former school board member and their mother is the county commissioner.

Anyhow, the State Education Secretary said the failure of the student was justified. No surprise there. To pull a bit from the story:

Forte (the teacher) said it felt good to have an investigation exonerate the school's decision not to change the student's grade. She said other students in her class didn't get a passing grade either.

"I didn't fail them; they failed themselves," she said.
