Atlanta cheating scandal

highlights dangers of high-stakes testing:

"Proponents of so-called 'reform' like to blame teachers' unions for everything bad that happens in schools, but with cheating scandals popping up across the country, including in a number of decidedly non-union districts, it's becoming clear that that's not the case. In fact, although Atlanta teachers have no collective bargaining rights, some of them belong to the American Federation of Teachers, and it was the local AFT chapter that first reported cheating to the district superintendent."

Campbell's Law is valid everywhere. It's in your school districts as well. They just haven't been caught yet.
