Education Board apologizes for screwing up teacher exam papers

Date Posted: 2007-11-01

More than 190 individuals who failed a teachers’ examination because of grading errors by the Board of Education are getting another chance.

Morikazu Nakamura, the Chairman of the Board of Education, has apologized to those who took the Prefecture Public Schools Teachers’ Employment Test, explaining papers were graded improperly. He apologized to the test takers and their families, and promised disciplinary action against the staff members who committed the errors.

Test takers were stunned to learn they had been disqualified because of failing the examination. More than 190 were notified they had been disqualified in their efforts to become teachers. Graders miscalculated points, awarding only five points in places where it should have been 50 points, and in other cases adjusting computer programs to offset earlier errors.

Nakamura says the examination results will be overlooked, and those taking the tests moved on to the next step in the application process, another examination on December 8th.
