Falling test scores? Fix the tests, of course

I'm sure the school system will "fix" the declining test scores within two years ("State's test scores decline," July 24). The solution is obvious, as any politician and teacher knows.

Just make the tests easier! Then our administrators, teachers and other interested parties will throw a party to congratulate themselves for a "job well done."

And maybe the citizens will even throw in a "Golden Fleece Award" as well.
