NEW YORK (Jun. 14)
The New York State Education Department is “quite satisfied” with the academic records of graduates who will receive doctoral degrees Thursday from the Graduate School of Education of Yeshiva University which was sharply criticized last April by the department.
Dr. Frank R. Kille, Associate State Education Commissioner, also said yesterday that he was pleased by the “constructive steps” taken since the department told the graduate school to overhaul its doctoral program and make other changes.
At that time, the department recommended a thorough scrutiny of the qualifications and study performances of candidates for doctoral degrees of the graduate school this June. The department also requested that a conference be arranged with its officials “before final decisions are made on the granting of these degrees.” Dr. Kille said such a conference had been held for the approximately 17 candidates and that his department was satisfied with their records.
