Cheating Educators Get Caught
Principals and Teachers found cheating for their 55,000-student Atlanta Public School System. The superintendent, 178 educators (38 principals) being accused. 80 have confessed.
"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."
Isn't that always their argument when challenged, criticized or investigated? If you don't agree with their politics you are insensitive to the needs of the inner city and minorities. You are a racist. GTFOH!
What do their actions say about their (true) belief regarding the ability of these inner city kids or in the quality of the current curriculum and its educators?
Much respect to teachers but the good ones are outnumbered by idiots who have no true interest in improving the educational system and put politics first above all. Instead they're worried about securing their jobs and collecting more government money. I blame the left wing here. They want to keep you dependent upon them. They bank on it. They try to act like they are looking out for you and unfortunately my gullible minority brothers and sisters continue to fall for it.
