If you offer somebody a bribe, and also threaten them, and then follow it up by ignoring what's going on, this is a likely outcome.

Surprise!!

These tests are ruining our educational system. Instead of teaching real subjects and critical thinking teachers are teaching to the test which is not good. Of course corporations want a dumbed down population that is easy to exploit and enslave. I can't remember the exact quote but Thomas Jefferson once pointed out that a well educated populace is impossible to enslave!

There is no excuse for was done by those educators, if the allegations/charges are proven true. The harm that was done to their students, their professional reputation, and integrity was not worth whatever transient rewards they received. The new standards, the barrage of testing, the disappearance of teaching subject matter replaced by teaching to the tests, social-economic barriers, all have made teaching cumbersome. There are many other educators who struggle with the same hardships, who donít succumb to dishonesty. Because when all is said and done, an educatorís sole purpose and consideration is to the general welfare of their students.

Don't you just love some of the insinuations, they keep pointing out that they were black as if maybe they were picked or or something because they were black.

Black children being cheated of a quality education by black teachers in schools run by black educators prosecuted by a black prosecutor. There are still people trying to figure out how to play the race card.

Why yes. Get rid of testing because the black students cannot fathom learning anything. Treat them like gangbangers, and pretend it isn't teacher incompetence behind the fact they are not learning.There was a black teacher in Chicago that lived in my mothers neighborhood. She left CPS and opened a pivate school where she taught Literature, Science, Math, History, and the Democrats forced her out with regulations, and fees, and restrictions, because they were afraid if the blacks were educated they would leave.They would think for themselves, and leave the blocks where the best chance for huge votes remain.Black children are as capable as any other student if their parents stand with them, and their community encourages them. All too often the parents abandoned them, and there is no community effort.

Obama cheated on his taxes. Must be a liberal thing.
Barack Benghazi. The tax-cheating, social security cutting, hypocrite. He cheats almost as much as Tiger Woods.
Democrats are stupid gullible idiots.

If all the childre that cheated were black what is wrong with pointing that out? I am sure if they were all white it woud be pointed out. We have to stop excusing this behvor because minoriy studens are involved.

Everybody acts ad if this was a problem confined to Atlanta. It is not. Its root cause is the socialist concept of tax funded public education itself. It is compounded by the absurd equalitarian ideas embodied in "No Child Left Behind" that judges teachers by the performance of the dumbest, worst kids in the class. The only way to fix it is to do away with "No Child Left Behind" and let the biologically stupid and screwups that plain just don't care fail and drop by the wayside.
