I thought charter schools were going to save us?
Another Philadelphia administrator has been disciplined for his role in Pennsylvania’s widespread cheating scandal on state standardized tests.
Thomas Conway, a former assistant principal at Philadelphia Electrical and Technology Charter High School, has had his credentials suspended, according to the State Department of Education’s website. Cited as the grounds for discipline:
“Allegations that Educator violated the integrity and security of the statewide assessment by failing to follow proper procedures related to the handling and storage of secure documents, and by reviewing the assessment for purposes of creating an answer key.”
Conway has lost his administrative and supervisory credentials, along with his letter of superintendent eligibility, for a term of three years, ending April 29, 2016. The suspension of Conway’s instructional certificate will last six months and was effective starting in December 2012.
