AMEN!!  I think there might be the occassional time that I make a test
way too hard by some mistake and I would take a serious look at it and
maybe even let some collegues look at it and then deside if
adjustments should be made.  But I totally agree that curving gives
our kids a false look at the real world.  When they perform below par
at a job their boss isnt going to "curve" their performance.  He'll
just fire them.  Our kids need to learn that they have to work hard to
succeed in the real world.
