It seems the principals had no principles.

A potential 45 year prison sentence is bad, but they are more scared of this going on their ... dun, dun, DUN ... PERMANENT RECORD!

Silly Jesus: Some kids need to be left behind.  Everyone isn't college material.  Part of the reason that we compare so poorly to other countries on test scores is because they start to weed out the trash collectors, fine arts majors and nursing home workers early on.  There's nothing wrong with those career paths, but those folks don't need to be taking the SAT.

This happened in Houston, too. The school superintendent Rod Paige was punished severely.

Kidding!

George W Bush made him US Secretary of Education.

Y'inz shut yer word hole. I'm from Pittsburgh. You're lucky I can type a sentence that you can understand at all.


My sympathies about the Pittsburgh bit.  I understand why you moved to another continent.

Frederf: Forty-five years is a loooooooooooong sentence for a white-collar crime. Like, kill a man and be out in half of that long. I would have expected 10-15.


You forget the vein-popping hatred we hold for teachers in this country. Being a teacher is already a felony deserving 35 years. Cause they all make $250,000 a year, work maybe two months a year, and have sex with kids. In contrast to hardworking Real Murcians, who make $1.13 an hour scrubbing toilets and are happy to do it.

OgreMagi: No. English as a second language is a bullshiat excuse. My stepdaughter came to this country not speaking a word of English at the age of eight. Within three months she could communicate well in English. In six months she was fluent. The following school year she made the honor role.


Whoa there, tiger.
The younger the child, the more quickly and easily they are able to acquire fluency in a new language. This natural ability declines gradually with age and nosedives once kids hit puberty or so. Of course it's still possible to learn a language after that childhood adaptivity is lost, but it takes significantly more time and effort. Let's not measure and judge everyone by the yardstick of one bright eight-year-old.

Notabunny: fta Investigators believe the test scores were tied to monetary bonuses for at least 35 former teachers and administrators.

So their ability to provide for their families is tied to their students' test scores? GENIUS!


The Superintendent provided for her family by fleeing town and going to Hawai'i for several weeks immediately after the charges dropped.

It would be hilarious if the teachers changed the answers and the scores ended up lower than the originals.
