test Houston, Jun 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a shocking development, it was found that the teachers are often under undue pressure and they tamper with the test scores of their students for their own advantage. The staff and the teachers at the Normandy Crossing Elementary School were promised bonuses, if their students performed well. So the scrupulous teachers even went to the extent of tampering the students scores, so that they could earn their bonus, which was in the range of $2,850 and onwards.

However the results seemed suspicious, as they seemed too good to be true. So an inquiry was ordered in to the case, and then it was found that the teachers had engaged in cheating as well, so that they could earn handsome bonuses.

After the inquiry, many school personnel were found guilty and the principal, assistant principal and three teachers had no option but to resign as well. The teachers had also had a good look at the state science test by ‘tubing it’, which is a method through which the person can get to know the contents of the package, without breaking open the seal. When the investigative team learnt that the questions were already know beforehand by the students, so they invalidated the results.
