Speaking of improving the educational system

state schools guilty of "data scrubbing"?

This is the latest public school scandal in my state and this first report will be the tip of the iceberg. Basically, it has to do with manipulating performance records of students in a way that falsely improves them. What's on paper might not be what's coming out of the classrooms. educators who are expected to teach against cheating are, themselves, being pressured to cheat on reports. The ramifications must be many. Not only will we get a false indication of how well our schools are doing but I'd expect taxpayers to balk even more at the frequent increases in millage rates property owners are asked to approve. Measuring the affect of improvements to education is no better than the data that's provided. Watch for this. It could be coming to a school you help pay for.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
