New York City has invalidated the scores of several dozen standardized tests taken by 3rd graders in Harlem amid allegations of testing improprieties by the school's principal.

The principal killed herself soon after testing was completed at Teachers College Community School. She jumped in front of a train April 17 and died a few days later, the same day the allegations were made.

It was the first year that the school had children old enough to take the tests. Many believed the school was prospering.
