Once again, union teachers in Atlanta prove that it’s not about the education, it’s about the money.
Thirty-five teachers and administrators from Atlanta, GA schools have been implicated in a scheme to extort money from taxpayers by falsifying scores on the standardized state tests. One of the administrators, Tameka Goodson was a school improvement specialist at Kennedy Middle School. I guess school improvement specialist (whatever the hell that means) is kind of like the vice in vice principal; as in — Vice Principal, in charge of Vice! Even the testing coordinators got in on the act. Geez!
Former Benteen Elementary School testing coordinator Theresia Copeland was jailed today on charges of racketeering, theft and making false statements.
Of course, it was all done for the children.
Lisa Terry, Ingrid Abella-Sly and Wendy Ahmed are accused of altering standardized test scores in 2009 and then accepting bonus money based on the falsified test results.
The children got that money in the form of books, pencils, notepads…right? Wanna bet we find out that these upstanding union members bought cars, phones, computers and the like with the money they stole from the taxpayers? Wanna bet the union spends millions to get reduced to no sentences for these crooks?
Reason number 15,340,426 to home school your children. Unfortunately, you still have to pay property taxes to these crooks.
