AIR.org’s $377,000-a-year Osher, chief of Turnaround for Children Inc., in cover-up over phantom research?

When will Osher answer questions about his phantom Public School 85 research?

Pants on Fire!

Osher: “You want me to answer questions?”

Yes, we do.

First question: How do you explain the disastrous test scores in P.S. 85 – the same school you touted as a Turnaround success?

Here since you, uh, “missed them,” are the P.S. 85 test results in wake of Turnaround for Children Inc.:

Second question: You say your “research” involved 2005 to 2008.

Where is the research?

We can’t find it anywhere.

Third question: Since you wrote your laudatory Turnaround article in August 2013, why didn’t you mention the latest disastrous scores?

The press reported these disastrous scores so it’s not like you were living under a rock – or maybe you were.

Here are the articles reporting the scores:
