Watchwoman on the Wall

Watchwoman:  The public government school system (PGS) is scary.  I am going to start sending you headlines I get in my inbox from local sources about the scandals and sex going on between teachers who seduce their students.  Well, it might actually be the other way around, teens are pretty gutsy because they have Hollyweird training them in the finer points of evil seduction.  For the past few years, I’ve been noticing that teachers and students are failing to know the boundries of where sexual acts and teaching begin and end.  As for me, I think it involves a lot of problems with the graphic sex ed kids are getting in the PGS.  But of course, the Ten Commandments and praying in the name of Jesus might harm them.  Ban the Bible in PGS.  That’s the insanity of the PGS mindset unfortunately. Read below about more corruption of the PGS.  Quote from the item below: “One teacher told investigators the district was “run like the mob.” Whoa!  Not exactly the education I’d desire for my children!  ▬ Donna Calvin

ATLANTA (AP) — Teachers spent nights huddled in a back room, erasing wrong answers on students’ test sheets and filling in the correct bubbles. At another school, struggling students were seated next to higher-performing classmates so they could copy answers.

Those and other confessions are contained in a new state report that reveals how far some Atlanta public schools went to raise test scores in the nation’s largest-ever cheating scandal. Investigators concluded that nearly half the city’s schools allowed the cheating to go unchecked for as long as a decade, beginning in 2001.

Administrators — pressured to maintain high scores under the federal No Child Left Behind law — punished or fired those who reported anything amiss and created a culture of “fear, intimidation and retaliation,” according to the report released earlier this month, two years after officials noticed a suspicious spike in some scores.

The report names 178 teachers and principals, and 82 of those confessed. Tens of thousands of children at the 44 schools, most in the city’s poorest neighborhoods, were allowed to advance to higher grades, even though they didn’t know basic concepts.

One teacher told investigators the district was “run like the mob.”
