    My daughter goes to one of the Gwinnett County schools where a teacher was listed, and I happen to know the teacher personally. It's sad because she really is one of the best teachers from that school. Her students wanted to go on the news to defend her record. Before we pass judgement on those teachers, we need to take a look at the entire education system. I am not defending the teacher's bad judgement here, but we need to get more information about Gwinnett County's educational problems, which are also symptomatic of the entire country's.

    I'm sure that many, if not all of the involved teachers are good people. However, they apparently received a pay hike for buying bogus degrees. That pay hike was financed by, among others, you, as a county taxpayer.

    The fact that some ethically-challenged teachers stole some money from the county has nothing to do with the educational system as a whole.

    No. No, we don't. This person succeeded in stealing money from taxpayers. At the very least, she should lose her teaching certificate. She should be thankful that it is not more than that.

    My guess is, given my work history, that I know as much about public education as most around here. That said, using the problems of public education to justify unethical behavior is not a reasonable argument.

    Teachers need to show more ethical behavior than the general public (and I believe that many do).
