What is your reaction to the news of cheating at Beach Court Elementary in Denver?  Is the pressure to perform on standardized assessments causing such incidents of cheating?  What do you think should be done?

 

"A state investigation has found “significant testing violations” at northwest Denver’s Beach Court Elementary School in 2010 and 2011.

The state Department of Education also has invalidated all 2010 and 2011 test scores in all grades and all subjects."
