Computer Glitch Costs NYC Students Timely Diplomas


Hundreds of students graduating from New York City high schools aren’t getting their diplomas on time because of a breakdown in the computer system the city uses to grade state Regents exams.

Less than 3 percent of 57,000 graduating seniors are still waiting for test scores. Some students went through graduation ceremonies without the payoff of being handed a diploma. One student was handed a Post-it note with his name written in marker.
