What is your opinion on Atlanta's public school cheating scandal?

Recommended Posts

For a second I thought it was something about students cheating which is almost an everyday thing in life. But teachers and principals? Damn.

Testing is one of the easiest ways to determine the progress of a child (and I say that with hesitation), but when you have an overemphasis on testing then you cant be shocked when things like this happen.

they overtest the kids, so they start to burn out. School should not be about standardized tests. They need to incorporate more hands on learning and field trips and ways to relate what they learn in class to real life.

how is this news, Just about every school does something to boast thier scores these days. Some even tell the under preformers to stay home.

 

I do like the concept of the curve, that saved my ass plenty of times in high school and college.

Well, it's school. But it should be a little more creative.
