He might have pulled it off if the “secret handshake” hadn’t given him away as a liar.

Brooklyn charter-school principal Lewis Franklin Thomas III has been booted from education jobs in three other cities after a string of résumé falsehoods — which were first exposed in Cleveland in 2005 after he claimed he was a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity but couldn’t do the handshake, the education news site Chalkbeat reported.

And while Thomas has deleted the fictitious frat membership from his bio — and no longer claims, as he did in Cleveland, that he had held staff jobs with Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton — other apparent lies and exaggerations still riddle his online bio at the Urban Dove Team Charter School in Bed-Stuy.

The lies include a claim that he “transformed” a DC charter school where he served as principal two months before being asked to leave.

    This story is truly incomplete. Was he any good at his job or not? There are a lot of people who get their job by lying so I need to know if he was able to hold his own when he held these jobs.

    Well he’s got the “transformed” School Reformer B.S. lingo down, I’ll give him that! No wonder he’s able to get over so easy on folks. Problem is, those same folks are getting over on us!
