Teachers who change test scores to make bonuses and to appear they have been teaching children should do long prison sentences for stealing from taxpayers and our children. Stealing is still a crime even in Atlanta and Albany, GA.

Trying to get Black pupils to test like White suburban kids is insane. Average Black IQ 85 with
25% at 75 or less!

These people cheated because they knew they had not taken the time to teach anything. The Union teacher looks at the black student, and immediately believes they are not worth the effort. The truth is they can do as well or better then any other student given half a chance.Look at the black students in the charter schools where they are not held back by Union teachers. They have the best, and they don't have to cheat.

This was the worst kind of racism to be perpetuated onto these children. To make matters worse their own people did it to them. And to carry it even further, the parents of these children have barely said a thing about it. The prison-esque "no snitchin" code has infected them. Although in a way I guess it prepares the generation of children cheated by the Beverly Hall machine since she has guaranteed most of them will be poor and likely end up incarcerated for a substantial part of their lives.

Does it matter what race the "union teacher" is?

NO, Union teachers have a built in bias. They assume they need to spend their time on students they decide are easier to teach.

A ghetto thug disguised as a teacher in the APS has admitted to cheating on standardized tests. If you can't teach then cheat, is her philosophy. She should never again have a Georgia Teaching Certificate.

Now we can all understand why the test scores have dropped nationally. Very little teaching is occurring in our classrooms when teachers are cheating to make money.

You look like the kid at school who sat alone at lunch.

And you grinned like an idiot every time someone walked by in hopes somebody would sit with you. Never happened, you were way too uncool.

One has to imagine what you look like when you attack someone for expressing their opinion on a Topix forum. It takes a very insecure and weird person to ruin the flow of conversation by interjecting such immature banter. Stay on topic or play with yourself at that lunch table you are fanasizing about.

Hmmm, and no one mentions the root cause of the entire problem......parents who just don't care what their little angels are (or aren't) doing in school.......

One hat to imagine what you look like when you're expressing your opinion as well. I imagine your a zit covered fat boy without a friend in the world.

Who do you think you are telling anyone what to do? Take your pompous little comments and shove 'em.

And you know this how?? If there was any validity in your statement then situations like what happened in Atlanta would be a daily write-up in print or on national news. But it isnít.

What kind of moron has to go back to April to respond to this? And what did I say that was not accurate? Nothing of course. Or this fool might have addressed it. Instead the moron goes after me personally. In an online forum. Sheer short bus thinking.

I'm afraid you are going to require more than one to construct that ass hat of yours considering the amount of adipose you continue to flap. This discussion is about yet another school caught cheating....along with the people who have not only cheated their students but the taxpayers as well. While you may enjoy looking at your mirror and describing what you see, we are not at all amused.

Where is Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson on this??? They claim to be all about what is best for the black community, what is fair for them, and claim to care about their best interest.....must not have had any way to make money off of this situation.
