Diane Ravitch says: I Signed a Petition to Judge Baxter on Behalf of Atlanta Educators .I saw a tweet with a petition to the judge in the Atlanta cheating case. After reading it, I signed it.
The punishment should fit the crime. No bankers or mortgage lenders were sent to jail for the crimes that nearly destroyed our economy and caused many people to lose their homes and savings.
The Atlanta educators cheated. They lost their professional licenses, five years of compensation, their pensions, and their reputation. Some are facing 20 years in prison. This is wrong.If you agree, sign the petition. If you don't,don't sign it. Think about it!' She is outraged at the media blitz & the punishment of Atlanta teachers who reacted to the pressure of the unfair tests by altering results so their kids did not face failure. This is NOT about teachers or schools. it is about hurting children.
