possibly to favor ortarget specific students to evade or endure the thinning. among those wrongfullyaccused of failing the exam, laina michaels, receivedone of the highest scores in the school. blake redding, son ofgovernor dean redding passed the exam, despitehaving the lowest score at vista point high. (phone ringing)

who scored in thelowest percentile. the head of the dpc, mason king, has been taken infor questioning in connection with thealtered test scores. - i am appalled by the allegedcriminal action of mr. king. as of tomorrow morning, i am appointing aspecial committee to fully investigate whatreally happened at vista point. if mr. king is guilty,
he will dearly pay forhis unlawful actions. - earlier reports indicatinga scandal involving governor reddingfalsifying test information were discredited when thepresidential hopeful revealed his son blake was among thisyear's failing students. - my son, as much as i love him, is no different than anyof your sons or daughters. i'm not a hypocrite. the laws apply to all of us.
it just doesn'tmake it any easier. i lost my son today. but i know in my heartthat he died for a purpose. all of our fallen students havemade the ultimate sacrifice in the name of ensuringa better tomorrow and in keepingamerica's future bright. i'd like to take a moment andthank them for their courage. - [voiceover] hold it. okay, they're all clear.
