Regarding Baltimore schools CEO Andrés Alonso's handling of the cheating scandal in which test scores were altered by school personnel, when these devious practices became public the guilty teachers should have been charged with committing a crime, brought to trial and punished accordingly — through reductions of salary, probation or firing.

Also, it is quite evident that these teachers had absolutely no respect for Mr. Alonso once they believed they could do as they pleased. Mr. Alonso must also assume some responsibility for his lack of proper supervision.
