    A USA Today investigation finds unusually high erasure rates for standardized tests at DC schools while charter-school darling Michelle Rhee was chancellor.


    Unusually high erasure rates are generally noted as evidence of cheating. Does mean their test scores will become (vacated)?

    You only write about us when you think we cheat on standardized tests.

    Agree on your assessment of Rhee.

    In fairness, I doubt she instructed the teachers to cheat. But she's responsible for creating that climate by pinning people's livelihoods on how kids did on questionably reliable, high-stakes standardized tests. Test results only get you so far, especially when you can't monitor the kid outside of class (and you don't get to cut the kids who suck).
