    Investigation into APS cheating finds unethical behavior across every level

    Across Atlanta Public Schools, staff worked feverishly in secret to transform testing failures into successes.

    Teachers and principals erased and corrected mistakes on students’ answer sheets.

    Area superintendents silenced whistle-blowers and rewarded subordinates who met academic goals by any means possible.

    Superintendent Beverly Hall and her top aides ignored, buried, destroyed or altered complaints about misconduct, claimed ignorance of wrongdoing and accused naysayers of failing to believe in poor children’s ability to learn.

    DAMN, some heads should best be rolling.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Unfortunately this is the effect of the standardized testing industry.

    LOL. that's nothing compared to the drama in my home town. There they have soap opera-ish plots within plots to set people up for bribery / blackmail schemes, millions and millions of mis-used federal desegregation money, teacher/prostitutes, temporary state take overs, and on and on. One of my friends still lives there and works in the school system.

    So let the heads roll, but check the necks too.
    I may be wrong.

    . This is not the effect of the standardized testing, it is the effect of years of poor teaching, and Unions making it easy to fail with no consequences.

    No, it is definitely the effect of standardized testing becoming so prevalent over the past decade and the policy under NCLB that tied standardized test scores directly to funding.
