The Grio Reports:

In elementary school, Taveres received ‘help’ from a teacher on the Criterion Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT).

“If they see you struggling, they’ll try to help you,” she said of the teachers monitoring those tests many years ago. “[They] tell you the answer is C if you’re struggling on one answer. If you’re struggling on another, the answer is B. So just the little answers that they give you . . . can cause a big change.”
