Last night on Rock Center with Brian Williams, a further report on the cheating scandal in the Atlanta Public School District was presented.
178 teachers and principals, for over 10 years, were changing test scoresof their students in their homes, etc.!! No one blew the whistle until an appointed committee got involved and got one teacher to tell all!As a former teacher, I think they all should have the certifications revoked.
What is happening here? Who gets punished? the children of course, who can’t read or write at their grade level! Then Harry Smith, in the same interview, reported that there are many other school districts doing the same thing!!! No wonder we have ethics problems in the US i,e, Schools, businesses, politics,sports, what next?
Maybe it’s time we teach those in education about ethics?
