4. The problem with this satire is that the testing scandal

 

wasn't created by teachers willy-nilly; when they did it it was under extreme pressure from administrators.

The "satire" seems to not get the fact teachers have very little control over their working conditions. If they dare stand up for what is ethical, they can be railroaded out of their jobs and out of teaching altogether by their administrators.

I didn't find this "satire" particularly funny as a result.

Given it was published by the teacher-hating NYT, it's no wonder I didn't find it funny at all.
