Hit & Run

Time for Some Remedial Legal Studies

|

Tiffany Schley, this year's valedictorian at Brooklyn's High School for Legal Studies, used her valedictory graduation speech to highlight persistent problems at the school, from overcrowded classrooms and the high turnover in principals to textbook shortages. She probably should've stressed ineptitude in the school's putative specialization as well, since someone apparently thought it would be OK to deny her the diploma she'd earned on the basis of those remarks. Mayor Mike Bloomberg has since called it a "bonehead" move and pledged to get the diploma to Schley with all deliberate speed.
