There is this story http://www.ajc.com/news/investigation-into-aps-cheating-1001375.html on how Atlanta schools improved test scores. They cheated. No not the students. They and their parents probably couldn’t care less about some standardized test. The entire Atlanta school system from the superintendent on down has been implicated in the fraud. Cheaters were rewarded and whistle-blowers were punished. One school teacher complained to investigators that the Atlanta Public School system “is run like a mob.”
Read the article. If it’s related to cheating, the principals, teachers and administrators of the Atlanta Public Schools were condoning it, practicing it, honing it and threatening anyone from the Governor on down for looking into it. The creepy cheating bastards even took page from the P-BO’s play book and called those who couldn’t believe the high number of erasures from incorrect to correct answers racists.
The whole thing blew up because the governor was suspicious of ever improving tests scores and ever high numbers of erasures. There is, believe it or not, a thing called erasure analysis. Based on that analysis, the governor ordered an in depth investigation.
“In the report, the governor’s special investigators describe an enterprise where unethical — and potentially illegal — behavior pierced every level of the bureaucracy, allowing district staff to reap praise and sometimes bonuses by misleading the children, parents and community they served.”
“The voluminous report names 178 educators, including 38 principals, as participants in cheating. More than 80 confessed. The investigators said they confirmed cheating in 44 of 56 schools they examined.”
“The findings fly in the face of years of denials from Atlanta administrators. The investigators re-examined the state’s erasure analysis — which they said proved to be valid and reliable — and sought to lay to rest district leaders’ numerous excuses for the suspicious scores.”
Now many of the cheaters face criminal charges. Given that it’s Atlanta and many of the schools in question as well as the superintendent are run by Erick the wad Holder’s “people,” i.e. criminal malcontents, expect the entire thing to quietly go away.
Oh, and speaking of the wad’s people, check these out:
Now Lex is a member of a group or gang. It is the most widely lampooned, criticized and made fun of group in America today, - white, patriotic, heterosexual, Christian, males. I can guarantee you if Msgr. John told the 11 o’clock mass that we were all going down to Lasuss’s after mass and rip the place off, he’d find himself pretty much alone - except for the few parishioners who would go down to store to make sure nothing bad really happened. Where are the right Revs. Jesse and Al on these mob scenes?
But back to the cheating bastards – see if there were an editor here at Lex that brilliant aside would have been chopped out – now back to the cheating bastards. How is what is going in Atlanta any different from what was going on at East Anglia University on global climate change? It’s all BS of equal proportions. Both are lying, cheating bastards who couldn’t be trusted to walk the dog. Yet somehow one is trusted to teach our children and the other redirects the wealth of nations based on a hoax.
