Board of Regents Punts the Blue Ribbon Commission Report on Graduation Measures Four years ago I traipsed to Ft Hamilton High School for a Regional Meeting addressing Graduation Measures in New York State. A few hundred of us were directed to sit at tables, I sat with a superintendent, a principal and a few parents. We watched a few videos, listened to a comments by Board of Regents members, similar meetings were going on around the state. We were asked to select a recorder and discuss a number of questions. The question not on the list, the question we all had: was the state going to eliminate Regents Examinations, was not addressed, each group reported out, a collegial few hours.
