"These kids can't read"

There's a lot of outrage over the sentences handed down by a judge over the Atlanta cheating scandal, up to seven years for doctoring standardized tests.  If you read a little deeper into the story, however, you can see that the judge was motivated to drop the hammer not because of the crime alone but because the lack of contrition by the convicted.

On top of that, the judge seemed to have concluded that a kind of child abuse had taken place.  These kids are in academic crisis and these teachers filled them with false self-esteem.
