GOLDSBORO, N.C. – A middle school in North Carolina is selling test scores to students in a bid to raise money.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday that a parent advisory council at Rosewood Middle School in Goldsboro come up with the fundraising plan after last year’s chocolate sale flopped.

The school will sell 20 test points to students for $20…

Crazy.  Why would any educator want to teach their students that throwing money at a problem is an acceptable path to a solution?  If that’s the direction we are taking, then why send the kids to school at all?  I could save myself hundreds of thousands of dollars just by buying each of my kids a Postdoctoral Degree online.
