Default Atlanta Public Schools.. doing right by your kids!

Big scandal breaking in the Atlanta public school system over the weekend. Just unbelievable. The state of public education in this country is in crisis. This one goes deep! Even principals knew what was going on.

-Dozens of Atlanta public school educators falsified standardized tests or failed to address such misconduct in their schools, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said last week. He was unveiling the results of a state investigation that confirmed widespread cheating in city schools dating as far back as 2001.

Investigators said teachers and principals working at 44 schools were involved in the scandal. The educators, including 38 principals, were either directly involved in erasing wrong answers on a key standardized test, or they knew -- or should have known -- what was going on, according to the governor's office, investigators said.

Deal's office said 82 of the educators acknowledged involvement, according to the report. Six principals declined to answer investigators' questions and invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, Deal said.

Lower the standards continuously, nope, not enough. No wonder our country is so ******* doomed and so many pieces of **** are living off the government.

This has been topic #1 for a few weeks here. IIRC the latest thing I heard was that 178 teachsers/staff are being told to resign or be fired. 178....that's a lot....and it'll go deeper. I jsut hope someone shoves a bat in that whorebitchchickenheads face that we call former superintendant Beverly Hall. Fat ******* piece of ****. I'm a youngin' at only being out of highschool 11 years.....and I'm glad that kinda **** wasn't happening. I rightfully failed my tests lol.
