Farcical DOE "consultations" took place in laundromats, dentists' offices

Add a laundromat in Flatbush to the list of places where the Office of Accountability held "consultations" when finessing the progress report plan. The Sun today reports that DOE officials promoted the reports and the Learning Environment Surveys at laundromats and dentists' offices after thinking "Where are people going to be?"

It sounds like the DOE just strolled in and started chatting up customers without any warning to the businesses. If Wash and Read owner Harriet Williams had known DOE officials were coming to her laundromat, she probably would have tried to be there — she told the Sun "several of her questions about her daughters' education have not been answered over the years," including why her application to transfer one child from a failing middle school was denied.
