Compton Unified School District busted for cheating on test scores

CUSDAs Compton residents prepare to elect new board trustees to the Compton Unified School District, the LA Times is reporting they have been stripped of their scores, on the state’s Academic Performance Index, over claims of cheating, other misconduct or mistakes that affected the handling of standardized tests. 

The LA Times reports in all, 27 California schools this year lost their academic rating, an increase from 23 last year.  The L.A. County school districts affected were those in Burbank, Claremont, Compton, Pasadena and Torrance.

A district investigation at Compton’s Walton Middle School “indicated that, yes, two different teachers had told [students] they had specific questions wrong on the test and to go back and fix them.” Officials also found that a 6th grade teacher had improperly divided a test into three parts and gave students more time than allowed to complete them.

2UrbanGirls has reached out to CUSD board trustee President Micah Ali for comment with no response at time of this post.
