Report: Sham HS diplomas in New York City & State, weak college readiness

It's official:
the diplomas that New York (especially New York City) gives out are sham diplomas. Despite the fact that some zealous young principals love to bandy about the cliche, "college readiness," New York City schools are not preparing students for college level work.
It's official: a New York State Department of Education report says as much. See the full discussion in Sharon Otterman's article, "Most New York Students Are Not College-Ready" on the front page of Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2011's New York Times.
Commissioner David Steiner and other high officials in the New York State Department of Education are cited in the article.
