An assistant principal at a high school in Manhattan is in hot water after an ethics violation.

The Department of Education is ordering Abdurraham Ali to pay $7,000 after he was found to have changed 11 of his son's failing class and test scores into passing scores.

It happened between June 2012 and January 2013, while Ali's son attended Bread and Roses Integrated Arts High School in Harlem, located inside the Percy Sutton Educational Complex.

Because he had administrative access to school's computers, Ali was able to change the scores without initial detection.

In a statement, the department said, "Mr. Ali abused his position, and has been disciplined for his inappropriate actions. The DOE is committed to swiftly addressing any improper behavior in our classrooms, to ensure that we are delivering a high-quality education to all our students."

The DOE said Ali is currently not assigned to any school. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
