As a parent whose child spent countless hours preparing for and taking the SAT, I am appalled that so many kids have no qualms about cheating ["Tighten security to validate SATs," Editorial, Dec. 2].

My child lugged himself to his test center and labored through this test twice. His scores are his, I am proud to say.

Ultimately, I cannot help but think that there was a complicit parent who came up with the thousand dollars or more these hustlers were paid to take the test.

The district attorney needs to get smart and go after the parents of these kids. Their culpability is the most serious of all.
