A Scandal of Cheating, and a Fall From Grace
Sitting in the polished offices of a lawyer who specializes in corporate criminal defense, Beverly L. Hall looked tired.

As Atlanta tries to sort fact from fiction and get back to the business of educating the 50,000 children in its public schools, Dr. Hall is left to defend her reputation, prepare for any possible legal action and consider whether her philosophy of education and style of leadership brought her to what is the lowest point in her career.

“I will survive this,” said Dr. Hall, 65, in her first public interview since a scathing 800-page report by state investigators outlined a pervasive pattern of cheating at 44 schools and involving 178 educators. ...

Again, Neil, not much to disagree about, though Bush Jr. is the one that pushed this idea also, He also had a more direct hand in a very bad idea as even this liberal organization realizes, The Faith-Based Initiative and ‘Charitable Choice'.

You can send your children to a place where the faith of their fathers is ridiculed and where the one true living God is ignored or belittled. Hmm, what would such a place look like? For starters those in leadership would work under the world's motto...."Looking out for #1"

I could have easily been involved in this scandal. I actually applied for a position in this district (among many others)about two years ago. I can safely say as a first year teacher in today's economy, if the principal asked/told me to cheat, I probably would have. I know I wouldn't have stood up and said it was wrong especially if all the other staffers were doing it. I think the real reason they are in trouble is because the tests were state issued and had monetary implications connected with them. If every teacher were fired or investigated for giving students better grades than they deserved, then I'm afraid we'd all be looking for work. That goes for schools both in the U.S. and abroad.
