Boxes of student records were piled in the street in front of the old home of the School for the Physical City. Some records contained the Social Security numbers, grades, signatures and even psychological reports of former students of the public intermediate high school. The boxes contained hundreds of records and were sitting next to a trash bin filled with old desks and other discarded school supplies. The School for the Physical City moved to a new location over the summer and apparently the records were thrown out with the trash during the relocation.

 

UPDATE (9/12/10): A parent and child are suing the New York City Department of Education.
