NYC sub teacher accused of tutoring scam

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City substitute teacher is accused of running a tutoring-service scheme that racked up $2.3 million in bills between 2005 and 2012.

According to court papers, Michael Logan of White Plains allegedly recruited former students to collect signatures from kids at sports practice to falsity attendance sheets for the now defunct TestQuest tutoring company.

The after-school tutoring at the two Bronx high schools was to help disadvantaged students.

Logan, who was a manager at the company, has been barred from teaching pending the outcome of his charges.

Meanwhile, the New York Post (http://bit.ly/Wxqg3v ) reports federal prosecutors on Monday joined a whistle-blower suit against TestQuest, claiming its management "recklessly disregarded the fraud."

TestQuest didn't respond to an e-mail seeking comment.

Information about Logan's lawyer wasn't immediately available.
