What good news it was to read about all those Atlanta School District teachers and administrators who got jail time for their huge 10 year cheating scandal. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter said it was “…the sickest thing that’s ever happened in this town.” For my money, all 35 who were originally indicted should have gotten jail time as well. And this has to be said about this case all of those involved are of similar ethnicity. I wonder if our POTUS will say anything about this…that’s a big don’t bet on it. And I also wonder if the US Attorney General will investigate the whole Atlanta school district…you can add another big doubt that to the stack.
I sincerely hope that this sends shockwaves through every school district in this country. But it probably won’t because there is a strong vein that runs through our society today…cheating, oh everyone does it.
Bob, many school districts link test scores with a teachers salary. I’m not kidding. The entire educational system is a mess and the Feds need to stop having a hand in it. Though here in CA. we’d screw it up without them dictating to us.
