Teachers Convicted of Inflating Test Scores For Federal Cash and Promotions: “Up To $5,000 Each In Bonuses”

The Federal government has billions of dollars to distribute to local school districts. But if schools want the cash they’ve got to play the game and ensure their indoctrination centers meet federal education standards, even if it means manipulating test scores for students who haven’t made the grade.

It’s about the money; nothing more:

In one of the biggest cheating scandals of its kind in the U.S., 11 former Atlanta public school educators were convicted Wednesday of racketeering for their role in a scheme to inflate students’ scores on standardized exams.

The defendants – including teachers, a principal and other administrators – were accused of falsifying test results to collect bonuses or keep their jobs in the 50,000-student Atlanta school system.

The educators fed answers to students or erased and changed the answers on tests after they were turned in to secure promotions or up to $5,000 each in bonuses, the court was told.

The 11 will all be sentenced on April 8 and could face up to 20 years in prison for the racketeering charges.

They were all found guilty under the the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, which is typically reserved for major mobsters and organized crime bosses.

‘This is a huge story and absolutely the biggest development in American education law since forever,’ said University of Georgia law professor Ron Carlson.

‘It has to send a message to educators here and broadly across the nation. Playing with student test scores is very, very dangerous business.’

It it any wonder why the American education system is so broken that mediocrity has become the norm? The culture within these schools is teaching our children that success should be punished, failure is rewarded, and deceit is an appropriate strategy for getting ahead.

The outcome here is the best education students can get. If you lie, cheat and rob your way to the top you go to prison.

Now if we could just get a few hundred more RICO indictments into the pipeline in Washington D.C. we might actually change the trajectory of this country for the better.
