The Ohio state auditor is investigating the practice of "scrubbing," or dropping students from attendance rolls so they don't count against test scores.

Other testing scandals have popped up in Mobile, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, and East St. Louis, Illinois. And everywhere USA Today looked in a 2011 investigation, they discovered statistically improbable aberrations in test scores, identifying 1,610 examples of anomalies that an Arizona State University professor compared to "a weight-loss clinic where you lose 100 ...

Charlie's Inside Corner: Recycling

The sports world is not unique to it but they are, perhaps, the best practitioners of it. I'm talking about recycling. The practice of recycling old coaches, old administrators, athletes too.
