    .... changing the scores recorded for specific kids in order to make them fit the normal curve?  

    That's equally legally actionable.

    It's also scientific fraud in the worst possible way.  Altering the data to fit the hypothesis: that is one of the core definitions of scientific fraud.  Any scientist who did that would be thrown out of their university so fast their head would spin.    And that ought to generate a class action suit as well.

      about it?  No one is holding the testing industry accountable, at all.  The teachers are being held accountable for testing "irregularities," but teachers are not allowed to talk AT ALL about the tests or by law, they could lose their licenses.  Nice system the testing industry has in place isn't it?
