Several Teachers Removed on Cheating Allegations

(Isiah Carey/KRIV 26 News)
What would the future of education look like if teachers were reduced to cheating to get their students to score better on state tests?

It’s an idea grandparents like Andrew Wilson at Cullen Middle School simply can’t live with. “I don’t think that’s right,” Wilson said. “I think children need to take care of their own business because if you pass me, and I can’t read; I don’t believe that’s right.”

FOX 26 News has learned at least two teachers at Cullen Middle School have been removed for allegedly cheating. And they are not alone. The Houston Independent School District also confirms two more teachers at Ryan Middle School are also being investigated for cheating.

The instructors were preparing their students for state tests like the STARR using the benchmark exam. (For more see story at KRIV 26 News)
