This story is a stark exposure of what's wrong with the whole NCLB regime based on standardized testing. That good administrators like Cruz and whole schools were thrown under the bus by the District while others, where the evidence of wrong doing is powerfu, l actually got promoted and are allowed to keep their ill gotten gains is sickening. Arlene Ackerman, a monstrous hypocrite who chided everyone else about not putting children first, presided over this corruption ridden system and got away with a golden parachute and her credentials intact. And there is little indication that either the state or local leaders have any taste for dealing with this.
