Squawk of the day - Dec. 24, 2011

" What interests me is the surprise expressed at the cheating in the school system. What if these investigations were conducted all over the United States, especially the South? What if we could see the results of an investigation of the school lunch program everywhere? I bet we would not have enough teachers left to conduct classes."

No one is surprised so I'm not sure where the squawker lives BUT he/she can't live too far away based on the comment. Deny all, admit to nothing and blame everyone else. Let's try to normalize this by saying "Everyone is doing it" That makes sense. NOT!

As the squawker says, the two problems are likely in every school system in the country to a degree--but certainly not to the same degree we have here. We seem to have a number of teachers who feel it is ok to give students scores that were not earned because it "helps" the student--this isn't really cheating. And we have a number of parents who seem to feel that it is not stealing if you steal from the "government"--it is not a person.

Would it matter if every other school system had these problems? Does that make it OK? This is our mess, regardless of what others do. If we don't have a higher standard then why have any standard? I lived here in the early '60s and saw what was done just to get the chance for a good education. Many of the people here in Albany have benefited from a good education. Now you say it's OK to cheat these kids out of the same chance you had?

LIKE IT OR NOT. BELIEVE IT OR NOT. IT IS STILL A BLACK AND WHITE ISSUE. FACTS ARE FACTS.
