Cheating reported in Oklahoma

"It was the year of the test cheating scandal," the Associated Press reported as 2011 drew to a close ('2011 marred by test cheating scandals across US'). "From Atlanta to Philadelphia and Washington to Los Angeles, officials have accused hundreds of educators of changing answers on tests or giving answers to students."

Add Oklahoma to the list. The state's largest newspaper reports today on cheating that recently occurred in Oklahoma. And when asked if the cheating is more widespread than what is reported, an interim assistant state superintendent replied: "Of course."
