As the saga at Maspeth High School continues to grow, we now have a new player to add to this disgraceful conduct: our illustrious mayor.
Mayor Bill de Blasio was apparently made aware of the grade-fixing issue at the school by Councilman Robert Holden in August. Kudos to the councilman for finally asking the Queens district attorney to launch an investigation.
If this is happening at this high school, how many other city schools could be doing similar things? Perhaps the district attorney should expand its investigation beyond Maspeth High School.
