I'm not naive. Mrs. Scoutmaster is a public schoolteacher in a metropolitan school district. The only Scoutmasterling left in elementary/secondary education attends a private religious school because (a) we understand the problems of which you speak and (b) we've been able to afford it in lieu of homeschooling, which was the alternative.
So I can understand why these teachers across the nation are being forced to falsify grades.
Forced? I understand the pressure, but they weren't forced to do anything. Did they give into economic coercion? Yes, but they had free will. People have lost their jobs in other occupations, or lost their lives or homes in extreme situations, because they were unwilling to falsify records or to lie. No, a teacher could have made a stand and been fired or forced out. Several could have made a stand and been fired or forced out. Fifty teachers could have have made a stand - "And friends they may think it's a movement,' as Arlo Guthrie would have said in his leftie way.
I know people who've personally taken moral stands that cost them their jobs or significant income. No, these teachers weren't 'forced' to do anything. Man has free will. These teachers exercised free will and bad judgment.
How can I learn to get paid by the word? ;^)
