brazant 4 years ago on CRCT Investigators say evidence of cheating "found in every school we've been to"

The Dougherty County School System is not a joke. Face it there is too much emphasis put on standardized testing. Teach the children and use the test to make help the students. If the scores are low work on that concept. Do not place children according to these test scores. Some children and adults are not good test takers. The state needs to replace the CRCT with another type of standardized test. Students are not being taught because the focus of the CRCT takes up valuable instructional time. Teachers are put in a bad situation when it comes to this test. No!, don't cheat, but it is not all the teachers or students fault.
