Confession Of A Cheating Teacher

My news organization, the Philadelphia Public School Notebook, ran this interview with a teacher who admitted to cheating on standardized tests. We granted her anonymity and did not name her school. We did talk to two other teachers who corroborated the essentials of her account.

I am interested in the reaction of others to our decision to run this without any names. We thought that it added significant depth to the standardized testing/cheating discussion. Thanks.
