Don’t Be Too Shocked!
There’s A Culture Of Cheating In Atlanta & DeKalb
when one teacher conscientiously reported (as was her duty) another teacher for cheating on the standardized test. This happened,
so I was told by a teacher at this school, at an elementary school in Atlanta. The teacher who did the reporting
was “corporately executed” (contract non-renewed), and the teacher who was accused of cheating
was made (no doubt by the principal, not by fellow teachers) “Teacher of the Year.”
This is how Atlanta works, Gov. So, don’t be too dismayed that Beverly Hall
has not investigated the situation at Deerwood Academy. There
is a cheating culture in the Atlanta Public Schools as well as in the DeKalb County
School System, in my opinion, and I have seen a lot in my days.
Governor, I have
always thought of you as an independent, competent, and honest man. If you really want to expose more on these questionable
and near-impossible gains (considering the Law of the Large Numbers), how about checking into the scores
(100% on the four reading and math tests) at Atlanta’s Capitol View and West
Manor Elementary Schools? Atlanta’s school culture is a cesspool,
despite all the accolades that the media and the local Chamber of Commerce apparently seek
to heap upon Beverly Hall. I still say that the three biggest educational hypocrites in Georgia
are Beverly Hall, Crawford Lewis, and Mark Elgart. © MACE,
