NEW YORK (AP) - New York City has invalidated the scores of several dozen standardized tests taken by third graders in Harlem amid allegations of testing improprieties by the school’s principal.

The principal, 49-year-old Jeanene Worrell-Breeden, killed herself soon after testing was completed at Teachers College Community School. She jumped in front of the train on April 17 and died a few days later.

The allegations were made against her the same day she killed herself.

It was the first year that the school had children old enough to take the tests. They would serve as the school’s first official appraisal. Many believed it was prospering.

Officials wouldn’t divulge what the allegations were, but said the investigation substantiated the allegations and was closed after she died. They say a report would be issued Monday.
