(Newser) – A funny thing happened as an 11th-grade teacher in Michigan started grading the final exam: Almost everybody aced it with a perfect score, reports WXYZ. Alas, the reason became clear soon enough, and it didn't have much to do with studying. It seems that two students spotted the answer key beforehand, snapped photos, then shared them in a group text, reports CBS Detroit. "Consequences are forthcoming," says the superintendent of schools in Southgate. All of the approximately 30 students in the unnamed class at Anderson High School had to retake a different version of the test, reports the local News-Herald.

Everyone cheats at some time in their life. Those who say they don't are also liars. For me it was the trigonometry exam, something I have found totally useless in the 40 years since High School.

THIS is what happens when ALL the EMPHASIS is put on the GRADE--not the learning. We need to do away with the archaic grading system, have a way to test the amount of material learned and retained--get rid of the stress of SOL's (teachers promising a pizza party for 4th graders IF they pass their SOL's)---Hey kids the SOL's are your TEACHER'S grade, don't sweat it. Kids having to be counseled before and after tests because there is so much anxiety and stress associated with it. And for heaven's sake, find the persons who created COMMON CORE and COMMIT them to Bellvue--they're idiot savants, and serve no use purpose to society.
