ATLANTA (AP) Juwanna Guffie was sitting in her fifth-grade classroom taking a standardized test when, authorities say, the teacher came around offering information and asking the students to rewrite their answers. Juwanna rejected the help.

"I don't want your answers, I want to take my own test," Juwanna told her teacher, according to Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard.

It is very discouraging to me that almost every time I read an article about fraud, corruption, crime, and scandal, it is overwhelmingly black people.

From the killing of a 13 month old child last week, to a professor instructing people to stomp on the name of Jesus, to the fraud to the corruption in the inner cities, and all the vote fraud. Now it is education fraud?

It is very sad.

American "Education" has been a hoax for decades.

The first thing that happened in Detroit when the emergency manager law took effect at 12:00 AM Wednesday was that the interim superintendent of Detroit public schools got his termination notice at 12:01 AM. LOL

There were at least 5 other school board members fired on Wednesday.

Our educational system is a one size fits all failure and that’s not even taking the marxist indoctrination into account.

The most corrupt aspect of local government in the world - American public schools.

“It is very discouraging to me that almost every time I read an article about fraud, corruption, crime, and scandal, it is overwhelmingly black people.”

When I attended a Peralta College in Oakland in the early 1970s, our head administrator was busted along with his teenaged son for selling stolen college equipment out of his garage every weekend.

The really sad part of this was his disbelief that he was doing anything wrong. He was just “gettin’ over on the man,” doing his part via personal reparations.

As the head of the college, he was handsomely compensated and lived in a very upscale neighborhood. But he still felt the need to “get mo’ check” through fencing stolen goods.

I’d mention his race, but... you know... that would racist. Right?

You know what they say, 99% of Black people give the other 1% a bad name! I am pained by the fact that stellar men like Dr. Ben Carson and Col. Allen West have to have their good works sullied by the vast majority of their ethnic “brothers and sisters.” They deserve a whole lot better than they are getting.

Juwanna’s parents get a round of applause from teaching her to be more honest than her “teacher.”

May God reward her, and them, by leading her to a real education, somehow.

The KKK and the White Power types could not conspire to do greater harm to African-Americans than the actual misconduct of the likes of former Superintendent Beverly Hall.

Fifty years since the civil rights movement, and this is what we’ve gotten.

Cheating by the likes of Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds gets all the media attention, but it merely disappoints the exaggerated expectations of sports fans. Cheating — and gross incompetence — by the likes of Beverly Hall and government school teachers fail the educational needs of an entire generation.

“Juwanna’s parents get a round of applause ...”

I’ll second that!

It’s a crying shame that a 5th grader has to worry about recrimination by government institutions (i.e., the government school) for doing the right thing. Juwanna deserves her own round of applause.

The other sad thing is that the blacks who do something positive with their lives are called 'oreos' by the other 99% who sit on their ass and pump out welfare babies for a living.

There is an associated report that claims that the legal process to claw back Beverly Hall’s “performance pay” of some $580k may be difficult if not impossible.
Here’s the deal. Give her maximum sentences on all charges ( will total up to more than 40 years) and tell her she can buy down her sentence at the rate of $100k per year. We win either way. Personally, I’d rather see her die in the slammer.

Your comment is dead on. “Gettin’ over on the man” justifies anything, including black on white hate crime murders. Fatherless, dependent, drug infested homes that produce feral offspring.

The slow descent of our society has picked up a lot of steam under Obama. This will end badly, and a lot sooner than we thought. I now understand why Homeland Security is buying ammo and armored cars.

Government employees in government schools. It’s like hiring rabbits to guard your lettuce patch and the rest of your garden.

Remember the black teacher in Atlanta who said she had to help the students cheat “because they’re dumb as hell”?

And why is it that the 99% won’t stand up to the 1%? (I actually believe the 1% is a double digit number.)

The 1% are ruining this nation and destroying our way of life through crime and the dem party is contributing to this destruction by encouraging out of wedlock births, not being tough on crime and promoting the exponential growth of welfare.

And I have yet to see an aa NOT using a welfare food card at the grocery stores in the past year.

Maybe not. Just did a Google news search. Saw articles from NYT, Christian Science Monitor, CBS News and a WaPo blog.

I was surprised.

I went to school in a wealthy suburb. Had a lazy Spanish teacher. He would leave the classroom during tests...

Everyone got As, so no one complained. Neither did our parents.

While the specific technique may vary from class to class, that is how school works, Charlie Brown.

Isn’t it racist to expect blacks to follow the racist white man’s rules and laws?

I think you read the ratio wrong in that post. It was 99% bad, 1% good. I think.

The good news is that guys like Carson and West have broad shoulders and good minds, so they just overlook the slurs.

Thanks for the ping. It's all over the Atlanta Journal and Constitution.

Here's the scary thing: Less than half of the Georgia schools where cheating was a certainty (schools were the odds of wrong to right erasures occurring naturally were in the billions to one, or more) were in the Atlanta Public School System.

Plus, if the AJC's study was right - the map I posted some months ago - the cheating is virtually a nationwide phenomenon.

This would not surprise me at all. I've mentioned before how few of the students in my 6th grade Sunday School class could really read, and these were the middle-class white kids going to those "Schools of Excellence!", not Mexicans.

(Not that Mexicans are ineducable, as so many claim: my friend Asuncion's oldest son is 5th in his high school class, as of the end of junior year.)

It wouldn't surprise me at all to find that our local schools are fudging the test scores.

This is why we may never have fair elections again. Just like these Cheating parties, elections are thrown, too. The ends justify the means with these uncivilized third world barbarians.
