Houston miracle my ass

From the same people who brought you the Houston Miracle comes the new wave of “organized, educator-led cheating on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills at schools in Houston and Dallas, along with suspicious scores in hundreds of other schools.

This should be no surprise to anyone who actually looks at the Texas education system and the people who run it. They cheated while Bush ran the show there. They cheat now.

The answer is simple: don’t threaten to take away funds from school who “under perform.” This whole debacle is the result of the No Child Left Behind act and the legislation in Texas that lead to the act’s creation. The public education system is not a business, and it should not be run like one in all instances.
