Dear Editor:

I was glad to see that the Regents fiasco was mentioned in the Queens Chronicle (“Some seniors will walk, but may not graduate,” June 20). I don’t understand why the Department of Education had to outsource the scanning of the Regents not just to another city, but to another state.

Shouldn’t we try to keep jobs in New York City? That’s besides the fact that I don’t understand why the Department of Education had to add the extra step of scanning the exams. In January the exams were sent to different schools for grading. The only problem with that was that some exams were lost. But sending them to Connecticut won’t decrease the chances of lost exams.
