Cheaters, unfortunately... do prosper

One man, Judge Jerry Baxter of Fulton County Superior Court decided to do something about it...

A furious Atlanta judge had a message for the 10 public school teachers, principals and administrators, who — after months of testimony and years of controversy — stood before him, convicted of participating in a widespread conspiracy to inflate students’ scores on state tests.

During the tests, those educators gave correct answers aloud, pointed at the right answers in students’ test booklets, or arranged seating so low-performing students could copy answers from high-performing peers. After the tests, teachers got together on weekends to change students’ answers, investigators found.

I'm guessing somebody learned a lesson here.
