Regents Board Approves Grading Ban
Tuesday, October 18, 2011

The ban is part of an effort to stop cheating on the exams, which not only determine a student's educational success but also factor into teachers' and principals' evaluations. WNYC's Amy Eddings talks to reporter Sharon Otterman of the New York Times and SchoolBook.org.
