Jay Leno worked a dig at the Atlanta Public Schools system into his monologue Thursday night.
“This is a shocking story,” he said. “Teachers – teachers! – in Atlanta – are accused of altering the students’ answers on tests to improve the scores. To raise the scores, they changed the tests. I guess it was pretty hard to catch them. For some reason, nobody could put two and two together.”
That corny quip got both laughs and groans.
Leno continued, saying, “You know who gets hurt by something like this? The kids. The kids are the ones who get hurt, because they’re never going to learn how to cheat on their own. When they get jobs on Wall Street and become lawyers they’re not going to know how to lie and cheat and steal properly. It’s a horrible thing.”
