Cheating Teachers Are a Global Problem

Australia’s National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) tests have been dogged by controversy this year, proving that teacher cheating isn’t just a problem in the U.S. One teacher was caught changing test answers, while some parents report “being told to keep children with learning difficulties at home on test days.” There are also reports of schools opening the tests early and preparing students accordingly. It sounds like Australia may be in need of some forensic economists. (HT: James Millett)[%comments]
