Dopey move

Dear Editor,

As a Forest Hills High School alum (Class of 1957), I'm glad that disgraced principal Ben Sherman finally resigned after heavy pressure from students, parents and teachers.

But I'm angry that he was transferred to the Department of Education's headquarters in the office of First Deputy Chancellor.

Sherman's base pay remains $173,693 a year, plus he gets a $10,000 raise if he works an extra five hours a month, according to the Department of Education. That's what I call "failing upward."

Did DOE executives smoke the same pot as Forest Hills High School students did under Sherman's tenure when they made this dumb decision?
