    Ms. Rhee has distorted her record as a teacher significantly.  She has claimed to have gotten her students to make record breaking test score improvements.  Now that the record shows no such achievements by her or anyone at the school she is walking back her boast.  
    As to what happened in DC, there is overwhelming evidence of cheating to achieve the test score improvements.  When first told of this Ms. Rhee refused to have the results examined, now that they are looking worse she is trying to blame it on a few bad apples.  
    I'm sure everything you hear in your life proves the point you want to prove.  It's not really a good measure of what is.

    This makes about as much sense as Mike Huckabee on mescaline. - Prodigal 2-6-2008
