This is horrible. As many are aware, the students actually write in their own hand with a pencil. This test/part of the S.O.L.s is impossible for teachers to help. When you see the other scores as math or English, science, etc., they were taken on computers. This allows the teachers to answer for the pupils by standing behind them and pointing to answer:A,B,C,D. when a known poor student in starring at the ceiling.

You are so full of baloney. I've never seen a teacher help a student cheat on an SOL.

I have known several teachers at Title one schools cheat on the SOL tests.Schools that were closing even cheated. One teacher at an elementary school once intercepted test booklets and took home. Many HCS schools cheat. The erasure to correct answer ratio is wide spread.

Awful that only 60% passed or as I read, 51% and some were borderline.

Cheating does happen on Standards of Learning, just swept uder. Atlanta Schools were widespread as many minority sections of the USA. It takes a whistle blower like that 5th grade teacher.

Next, the Unions, NEA/AFT will go into action to discredit the informant(s). Just as Snowden on a higher level. Buisness as usual.

If I was unhappy with Phoebus high school, I would have moved so that my babies could be in a school that I thought was better. Apparently, you are not in a position to better yourself and move to a neighborhood that is better suited for your needs. Feebus as you put it, has the absolute best principal in the district.

Just remember, you paid for the education that the kids in the Hampton Public Schools are receiving. Most commercial enterprises are compensated for the value of the goods and services they produce. The Hampton Public School system appears to be different.

Then blame the state department of Education. They make the rules and set the criteria. Or better yet, I think Bush's 'no child left behind' mess, was a huge fiasco that should have never been allowed to happen.

Bush/Kennedy brought back cross-town busing with a different name, NCLB/title 1. The top schools have overall average grades watered down due to' no thugs left behind' being integrated in them. Most teachers will tell you it only takes 2 or 3 of these thugs to ruin a classroom. My son says they are also bullies on the buses and I started driving him to school. Principals do not discipline them because Amdn. are graded as well.

Face the facts. Blacks score well below all other races in Hampton and Anytown,USA. Schools with the top grades in ghetto areas like Hampton, score higher than 98% title-1 schools. If a great teacher from Hilton Elementary or Tabb High were to teach at Phoebus, Hampton High, Cary, Aberdeen, etc.' the SOL scores would barely be different.
I have a social expierment--put all the black kids at Hilton E.S. and bus in 900 blacks to Tabb High; now, let's see what happens. Can you say, "Probation, unaccredited, warning" from VDOE.The End

That's why the new multi-million dollar Andrews School is awful. Just put a collective group of thugs from other schools in a new building. Future Police blog, get a yearbook.

He's one of the most upstanding people I've ever met. I'm guessing you don't know him and are just taking the opportunity to run your mouth or maybe you don't like people who are better educated than yourself.
