Why pick on teachers? I'd say that is standard for all Govt. employees. Start with D.C. and go down from there.

I think it exposes that a red state like Georgia is incompetent when it comes to education. They don't care if public education fails, it's failure fulfills their own philosophies.

To have many teachers cheating like this you have to make it pretty easy.

KDave, didn't you mean to write "politicians" instead of Govt. employees?

As a grandparent, I am somewhat conversant about the public school system.
I can remember when an 8th grade education was practically the equivalent of a High School education of today. I find it odd that those continuing on to college have to take "remedial" courses to handle the college curriculae. Our kids are overweight yet the public schools do away with physical education, opting instead, to control school lunches. The teachers unions have long argued that "pay us more" and "we'll give you better students". Sort of putting the cart before the horse!
If I learned one thing about higher education, it was that graduates have learned how to "crib" for an exam, and how to pay someone else to write their thesis..
I don't think the problem cited is only in Georgia (a red state) but many others as well (even some blue ones)
