The point is you have no idea if it is easy or hard to cheat on the CST. People assume that because a school does well they must have cheated. It is always hard to do the right thing, but I believe that until someone has some evidence and not just hearsay they should not assume people are cheating.<quoted text>
Reread my post. I never said it was right (cheatin), I was responding to someone saying it was hard to cheat.
Cheating is hard, are you saying doing the wrong thing is hard, but doing the right thing is easy? Is your sense of reality that upside down?
You said people who can't cheat are lacking. It would take a very large conspiracy to falsify the CST not to mention violating state law (every teacher must sign an affidavit promising they will follow the directions and administer the test according to established guidelines). So, to make an assumption that a teacher would risk losing their credential, jail time and fines to make their school look better shows your sense of reality is upside down.
The school made some gains on their test scores due to hard work and instead of celebrating their accomplishments, they have to hear people telling them how easy it is to cheat. Why can't people just give credit where credit is due?
