Actually, Hill Billy....I didn't read your whole post, I stopped when I see you said that "Kids aren't taught cursive writing skills anymore..." Actually, when Tennessee adopted the Common Core Standards this year, they made one addition to it....they added cursive writing in third grade.....look it up on the Tennessee Education website.
WOW !! You people need to wake up!! I was an Instructional Assistant for the county for many years. Let me just state this: has ANYONE ever asked the "select few IA's that go to midway and work evenings after TCAPS to "go through and erase marks and make sure info on student is correct" what they are doing with erasers and why this is being allowed??? Erasing marks and erasing the colored dots that are out of the lines?? Are you kidding me??? Yes it happens people- too many here have put their trust in RON DYKES and WCDE. If you all only knew- you would transfer your child. AND QUICK!! I love that someone had the balls to start the petition. Now everyone needs to help our county and our children and sign the petition. Then he and Vicki could retire to Tybee Island. Then Susan belcher could run the bar and brothel, Karla kyte could be the dancing entertainment and Jared Adams could run the gay porn store. Not rumors people: JUST FACTS!!!!

I wonder if there are a lot of erasers going wild around the county after t caps are over. they need to just look at each school and see who has access to all the testing materials. Maybe they need to test some hands for eraser and number 2 lead residue. ha ha Sounds to me like Matthew knows what is going on in the county system. I don't think an IA is going to do this on their own without taking direction from someone higher up.. Who is giving the directions to pencil whip them in to shape... Makes you wonder what lenghts some may take to make their school look good....

I know you all think you are really smart...BUT did you know that the state department has a report citing the number of erasure marks. If it's high the district is penalized. To my knowledge Washington County has never been out of the norm. Know your facts before you spread lies. Be part of the solution not problem.

The building test coordinators(school counselors) pack up all the teats. Then, Dr. Kye and her crew come and tape up the boxes and put mailing labels on the boxes, the process takes 30 minutes. Within a day the mail comes and picks up the boxes from the school and ships them to be processed and scored in Iowa. JUST FACTS!!!!!

You must not be aware of all the erasing that goes on at several of the schools in the county. And Ms. Kyte would put a knife in her mama's back if she thought this would help her move of the ladder. She deserves to lose the title of Dr along with Susan Belcher.

Doubt it, the counselor there is very thorough and particular when it comes to tcap, I know, I proctored there for several years. She's one of the few counselors in Washington Co that has true concern for the children.

Believe what you want! I know this happened because one year and one year ONLY ( not long ago) I was asked to join the "erasers club" I saw with MY eyes, that yes indeed it happens- so you are mistaken because I did work at JMS- and yes some "things" were altered! Sorry to bust your bubble - wcde is turning into the MAFIA!!

I agree with you completely about the counselor at bce , I have also proctored there a few years ago. she is a dear lady and very honest and loves the children, and honestly she seemed to me to be the one of the few that did .I would never imply or even think she would do that. But she is not the only one that can gain access to the test.

That is a fact as well. I was just disproven what the other person considered facts. No doubt cheating could happen, it would have to be very low key.

No I think this is the counselor at BCE. No one else would praise this nut.

Yes, I do believe this took place. I know first hand that these people will do anything. They are not the type of people you would want working with your children. The CO crew are like the hillbilly mafia. They do not have the chrisma that many members of the mafia had. Ron Dykes is a worm. He is just scum trash. His exwife (nark) deserved this dog.

What the crap does Obama have to do with this discussion???? It blows my mind that people don;t know how to stick to a topic and talk about only that... This is about t caps, not politics, not Dykes, not Belcher and Adams, Not a sounding board for the angry parent,(we all know he has made enough of his own to go off on), I can't believe others don't chime in on this one.. Why is t caps such a big deal any way. What does a school get if they score good vs scoring bad? If we knew what is in it for the school, then we would know who it is worth while for to try and make the test better....

What does the school get? 50% of a Teacher's evaluation is based on tcap scores. It's obvious why they want good scores.

Are you the Topix police? If you read the previous post concerning WCDE employees cheating on TCAPs Liberals were being blamed. I would imagine that is why Obama was mentioned. Now, Karla Kyte is the testing coordinator so she would be a player in this scenario along with Dykes, Belcher and Adams. I do not see a need for the TCAPs, but cheating is not the answer.
