    @kylemas2005 “I not writing a term paper”

    Nor have you ever had to judging by your cretinous lack of education. People as stupid as you should be shot and sold for budget dog food.

    “I’m trolling”

    And failing, trolls are supposed to piss people off, not get laughed at. So you can’t even troll without fucking up, what are you good for?

    Anyone remember the “60 Minute” segment on teachers cheating all over the USA? It was aired about 15-20 years ago. They said Alaska was the only state that hadn’t cheated on national standardized tests. People, we’re fooling ourselves. Man is sinful, and money truly is the root of all evil. People will do whatever they can to get as much of it as they can.

    @JACKtheRIPP3R189 Yeah, I not writing a term paper. I’m trolling on a black failure thread. Pull your head out of your ass and bow up with a better defense than your weak japes. Fucking white guilters are cowards. Good thing your not from Norway. Otherwise you would of been one of the left wing white apologists that got put down on that island.

    @erroneousapostrophe Many superintendents are allowing cheating to take place all over this nation. One day, what is done in the dark will clearly be seen in the light. Just wait and see. I’ve worked with black and white teachers. They all cheat. It’s all about recognition, bonus checks, and not being fired. Test scores and data results everywhere are being inflated!!!!!!!!! Whites, blacks, and all other races of teachers are cheating! Why? The love of money is truly the root of all

    LMAO there once was a time when a white racist in America was something to fear but now the worst thing they can do is sit behind a computer and type derogatory words. Honestly I fear the participants of the Special Olympics more than I fear these fools. Back on topic however this is one of the most pathetic stories I’ve heard in a long time. Maybe if the students weren’t so busy dicking around then they could get respectable scores on their own.

    @kylemas2005 “all black students”

    Making shit up? How typical of a racist to think they’re superior when they’re the worst example of the breed. I daresay your teacher had to cheat to get you through english class judging by your grammar and spelling.

  12. vikingaprinsessan on the 23. Oct, 2011 remarked #

    Why not just take the test in a gym with all classes together? That’s what we did when we had standardized tests.

  13. 51Rainy on the 23. Oct, 2011 remarked #

    During the Bush Admin’s “NCLB Act, teachers’ jobs were on the line, students were being told if they didn’t pass the tests, they would not graduate, administrators were told they’d have to shut down schools, etc. As a result, Bush encouraged lowing standards, realizing ALL students don’t learn at the same pace. Obama criticized Bush for lowing the standards and started “Race to the Top,” which has caused even more damage to education.

    I’m a retired 30 year teacher who knows the truth.

  14. 51Rainy on the 23. Oct, 2011 remarked #

    Quote taken from “THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press Secretary on April 14, 2000″:

    “The President will call on Congress to pass an education bill that invests in proven strategies for reform instead of gimmicks like vouchers and includes his Education Accountability Act, which requires states to help turn around failing schools or shut them down.”

    Yes, Bill Clinton started this…Bush left off where Clinton began, and Obama continued this reform putting more pressure on teachers to cheat.

  15. 51Rainy on the 23. Oct, 2011 remarked #

    Why are teachers and administrators cheating? It’s the “Race to the Top” contest. It’s causing teachers to fear for their jobs. It’s bringing out the greed deep down in side of people; Check out this video on youtube. Type in:

    “Race to the Top Round Two Winners Announcement”

    It’s not just happening in the black schools of Atlanta, Georgia. It’s happening all over this country even is predominately white schools. God knows. The love of money truly is the root of all evil.

    @dwschultzfla I wasn’t talking politics here. I voted independant and if it were up to me, politicians on both sides would be shot. I am not a Republocrat or a Demopublican, I am an American and I wish you partison asswholes would give me my country back! We are talking about children and politics doesn’t belong in this conversation at all. Perhaps when people start caring more about thier children and country than thier corrupt parties, our kids might get smarter too!

  17. dwschultzfla on the 23. Oct, 2011 remarked #

    @astrofrk Obama has contracts with KBR and Xe (formerly Blackwater). He has started an illegal war in Libya. He has no explicit authorization from congress to commit troops in Libya. GWB had authorization from congress. The left wanted GWB impeached and tried for war crimes. BO. has no authorization and is killing innocent Children in Libya.In accordance with leftie principles Shouldn’t Obama Be impeached and charged with War Crimes? Where is that cry from the left or are lefties HYPOCRITES?

    Now we have the Cover Your Behind Act.

  19. astrofrk on the 23. Oct, 2011 remarked #

    Don’t blame the teachers, blame the pressure from the “No Child Left Behind” act. Let me ask you a question: If your boss forced or ordered you to be dishonest, would you so it in order to save your livelyhood? Anyone who said “NO!” was already fired. You can rename it: “No Childs Behind Left!”

    The problem is that certain “Chirrens” these days value the importance of sports more than they value being studious. They think that the NBA or the NFL is their ticket to a better life….higher education is the best route to go. I dont care if there is an all black school or all white school. A HS or college degree will carry you far in life more than a damn basketball or football. Be true to school everyone.

    What does massa mean?

    @mrberstein

    What the teachers did was unforgivable. If they are looking for funding, this was not the way to go. If the teachers actually cared & they had the materials they need, that’s 2x the improvement.

  25. kirabook on the 23. Oct, 2011 remarked #

    @mrberstein
    I’m not making excuses, I’m sure many of those kids could give 2 $hits about about school. But why do you think that is? Because of their social location. Where they live, having an education means nothing. They will most likely stay where they are for the rest of their lives & never do anything for themselves.
