NY Educators still re-writing literature for the Regents' Exam:

They promised they'd stop it, but they did it again.Last June, after a parent caught them red-handed, New York State education officials promised to stop sanitizing literary excerpts on the state high school Regents exams. But a review of the most recent state exam, given in August, reveals that they did it again, this time altering Franz Kafka and sanitizing Aldous Huxley.Worse yet, a historian quoted on the exam believes that a test question based on his work has more than one correct answer. If he is right, it may mean that some high school students who failed the August test actually passed and could be eligible for a diploma.
