NEW YORK Jeanene Worrell-Breeden had what she called a dream job running a public school linked with Columbia Universitys Teachers College when she killed herself by jumping in front of a subway car this spring.

..

Three months later, the city Department of Education says there was more to her sad story: The principal had fudged answers on third-graders state English exams, and authorities learned of the cheating allegations the same day she made her fatal leap. All the schools third-grade English scores have been thrown out in the first year its students took the important test.

..

The scandal has stirred sorrow and uncertainty after a promising start for Teachers College Community School and clouded the career of a Wall Street worker-turned-educator whod earned praise for her approach.

..

People are devastated, Sanayi Canton, a second-grade parent and president of a local education panel, said Monday. It has always been a very open and honest and transparent situation that weve been a part of.

..

The allegations, which the city Education Department said it substantiated, come amid debate over testing and the national standards known as the Common Core; teachers unions and some parents say education is too driven by high-pressure tests, while officials say tests are tools to improve schools. Educators have been accused of doctoring scores before; 11 were convicted of criminal charges in a notorious Atlanta case this April.

..

Meanwhile, Teachers College Community School seemed poised to prosper in its first round of Common Core tests, which factor in teacher and principal evaluations.

..

Intended to pair a public school with the research and other capacities of a noted teacher-education program, Teachers College Community School boasts $30 million in backing from Columbia, graduate students helping out in classrooms and such extra features as a robotics program. Opened in 2011, the Harlem school is on track to enroll over 200 students in prekindergarten to fourth grade. Plans ultimately call for about 300 students going up to eighth grade.
