1. I love Neil, but students didn't cheat. It was the administrators pushing the tests who cheated.

So it's because the administrators valued the good opinion of people who know nothing about education - and who want to exploit the education system for profit - more than they value the actual education of children.

Which means they should be making widgets for a living rather than telling teachers how to educate.

"People can call themselves Democrats for Education Reform it's a free country but if your agenda is to shut teachers and school employees out of the political process and not lift a finger to prevent cuts in education, in my book you're not a reformer, you're not helping education, and you're sure not much of a Democrat," said state Supt. of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, a registered Democrat whose office is nonpartisan.
