Alonso should be shown the door

July 04, 2011

Reacting to the cheating on test scores at two Baltimore schools, city schools CEO Andres Alonso states that the system's "progress has been real" ("2011 scores will be clean, Alonso vows," June 24). I say, "real ugly."

How can kids in Baltimore achieve while Mr. Alonso accepts reading and math scores so far below average?

This is not the first cheating scandal he has faced as CEO of city schools, and what has he done? Nothing.

The fish stinks from the head down, so why does the school board want to extend his contract? He should be fired along with the principals of the schools where the test scores were changed.
