For the principal and assistant principal, high scores could buoy their careers at a time when success is increasingly measured by such tests. For fifth-grade math and science teachers, the rewards were more tangible: a bonus of $2,850.
But when the results came back, some seemed too good to be true. Indeed, after an investigation by the Galena Park Independent School District, the principal, assistant principal and three teachers resigned May 24 in a scandal over test tampering.
The district said the educators had distributed a detailed study guide after stealing a look at the state science test by “tubing” it — squeezing a test booklet, without breaking its paper seal, to form an open tube so that questions inside could be seen and used in the guide. The district invalidated students’ scores.investigations in Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, Virginia and elsewhere this year have pointed to cheating by educators. Experts say the phenomenon is increasing as the stakes over standardized testing ratchet higher — including, most recently, taking student progress on tests into consideration in teachers’ performance reviews.

This is what happens when an entire society eagerly pursues something that quite obviously doesn't exist.
Equality is a fiction.
The races are not equal, and nothing in the world is going to change that fact.
But lying sure is a quick fix and by the time anyone notices, it (and the implications it highlights) is swept under the rug and forgotten.
And even if you believe in equal opportunity you will still be faced with the fact that EQUAL OPPORTUNITY DOES NOT MEAN EQUAL OUTCOMES.
As Whites continue to decrease in percentage (due entirely to the flood of legal and illegal immigrants) America will sink deeper into the depravity common to the third world. Corruption, crime, poverty, disease....these things are common to certain races no matter where they reside. Bringing them into The West will not change their fundamental makeup.
If you dance with the devil you better know the devil leads. And America has most certainly decided to waltz with Old Scratch when it trampled truth and reality under foot to exalt its new golden calf, equality.
