DoE, also incompetent

February 18, 2009 am28 10:52 am

Progress reports? Malevolent. Teacher data reports? Malevolent. “Open Market?” Malevolent.

ARIS? Malevolent. ATRs? Malevolent. Reorganizations? Malevolent. School closings? Malevolent.

Web site? oh my.

I went to look up an elementary school. Call it PS99 (not the real #). Go to schools.nyc.whatever, and type PS99 into the engine. Brrrpp. Nothing. Takes a few minutes, but since I know the damned school exists I try again, via Google, and get to the correct DoE page. Turns out the DoE website only recognizes PS099 with a zero.

I suspend better judgment. Instead of mocking the morons at Tweed, I find the little “contact us” box and fill it in, with a description of the problem, and the suggestion that they allow the search for PS99 to turn up PS099 (especially since normal folks call it PS99, but I didn’t mention that.)

No difference. Look what I got back from them:
