The Department of Education is cracking down on graduation rate inflation, following weeks of news reports and investigations alleging academic fraud at New York City high schools.

Chancellor Carmen Fariña announced Tuesday that a new task force will examine how high schools are awarding credits, taking a close look at credit recovery courses, which allow students to earn credits for classes they previously failed. The six-member task force will put together two reports each year that detail how closely schools are following graduation requirements, and staff members at the city’s new borough support centers will be tasked with examining school data for potential improprieties.

This follows several recent scandals involving changed grades, and statements by the DOE that they were looking for inconsistencies in testing data.
