"When an Eau Claire, Wis., high school came under scrutiny for having low test scores and high truancy, the principal decided to address the problem the easy way: He cheated. This Leader-Telegram investigation showed how the principal violated school district policy by attempting to exempt about twice as many students as allowable from a mandatory standardized test, a move that would have nearly wiped out a long-standing test-score gap with the city's other public high school."
