    I suspect this is not the only cheating going on with standardized testing in the US. Think about schools that barely squeaked by with test scores one year only to excel the following year. That sort of improvement is suspicious. Education in the US is in trouble. I would imagine that the majority in the profession (educators) are there for the paycheck, and great pensions, the minority (teachers) are there because they actually enjoy teaching children, and watching them grow. Our children our being "dumbed down". Ask yourself, how many educators use notebooks, computers, and other electronic devices in their classrooms, and how many "teachers" actually sit down with their classes and teach. You see there is a huge difference between teachers and educators.
