The Dallas Morning News has just put out a big series on -- yes, again -- cheating on the Texas state exams, called TAKS. Here's the rundown, according to reporter Josh Benton: "Day 1 is the main story, detailing what we did and what we found (Analysis shows TAKS cheating rampant
). Day 2 is all about charter schools, where cheating is far more common than in traditional schools (Cheating's off the charts at charter schools
). Day 3 is about how Texas could stop 90%+ of the cheating tomorrow if officials felt like it (Efforts to stop cheating often fall short
)." Of course, it's all NCLB's fault. That's a no-brainer.
