Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
State Finishing Ohio School Data-Scrubbing Review
The Ohio Department of Education says it’s almost done reviewing how altered attendance data affected state report cards for schools in eight districts.
Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Toledo are among those that will get recalculated district and school report cards for the 2010-2011 school year once the investigation is finished. The other districts are Marion, Campbell in Mahoning County, Northridge in Montgomery County and Winton Woods in Hamilton County.
It’s not clear how much the report cards might change once they’re updated with accurate data, especially for the larger districts. A department official overseeing the review says the public might not notice much difference.
The Department of Education also will review the Columbus district’s report card once the state auditor finishes an investigation about data-scrubbing there.
