Probe: NYC teachers abet cheating

NEW YORK (AP) - Teachers and administrators at 32 New York City schools
helped students cheat on standardized tests by providing them with questions
in advance and even marking test forms for them, a special investigator for
city schools charged. His report, released Tuesday, describes crude cheating
schemes designed to improve elementary and middle schools' performance on
city and state tests. In one case, third-graders reported an exam proctor
told them to write their reading test answers on a piece of scrap paper
before putting them on the official test, then the proctor, a school
principal, allegedly came around to point out incorrect answers. According
to children who took the test, the proctor walked around the room and
pointed out incorrect answers, saying either "that's wrong" or "do that one
over." See full story
