You must not say such things. Such truth is inconvenient to those who want to cut all govt. spending. They must justify firing teachers, etc. And one of their pet ways of justifying such firing is by saying that teachers are not effective because student test scores are not showing significant increases in performance. The teacher must always be described as the absolute significant factor in student performance. What you say is the truth. But to much political power is at stake for you to go around telling the truth. Just go along with the mythology... it's all the teachers fault.
