Um, the cheating scandal was only in the Atlanta Public Schools--the Atlanta city proper.


Fayette County is an affluent suburb on the southside of Metro Atlanta.

That's why every student whose ever cheated on anything has done so. Because they couldn't compete, weren't prepared, were too lazy to do it the right way, so they took the easy route. And this improves the students self esteem.???


And this teacher has the nerve to blame the system for her dishonorable and atrocious acts. What a slime. Horrific.

So a teacher should let some kid suffer an emotional beat down simply because he or she can't answer test questions?

Can SACS sanction individual schools within APS? Why should the good schools have to suffer for the misdeeds of those allegedly caught cheating?

No. Every one should get straight As, be starting quarterback (or head cheerleader or whatever), and date the prom king/queen. No matter how much they study or dont study, no matter how athletic or not. Never let reality intrude in a child's life!!!!

Good gracious, theatre of the absurd.
