Security management--“hey! How do you steer this thing?”

Security management--“hey! How do you steer this thing?” It had to be true. It was in the Washington Post. After 72 unsuccessful attempts to pass the required driving test, the District of Columbia police academy candidate was rejected in her bid to join the force. This clearly was the correct outcome. Yet I could not help but wonder, "What if she had passed on that 72nd try?" It seemed to me possible that the academy had somewhat of a lack of understanding of what it means to demonstrate basic competence. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ACM SIGSAC Review Association for Computing Machinery

Abstract

It had to be true. It was in the Washington Post. After 72 unsuccessful attempts to pass the required driving test, the District of Columbia police academy candidate was rejected in her bid to join the force. This clearly was the correct outcome. Yet I could not help but wonder, "What if she had passed on that 72nd try?" It seemed to me possible that the academy had somewhat of a lack of understanding of what it means to demonstrate basic competence.
