Atlanta School Scandal: Cheating By the Book

April 13, 2013 at 7:26 AM 2 comments

The Atlanta school scandal — cheating in the Atlanta Public School District — allegedly occurred when former Superintendent Beverly Hall oversaw that district.  To date, 35 employees – all black – within the district ranging from teachers, to administrators, to others (including Hall) have been indicted because of it.  Apparently, the worst part of the whole thing is not the cheating itself (though that is bad enough).  It is the racketeering charges stemming from the financial bonuses educators received because of those now bogus higher test scores. Parents are understandably upset as are other educators in the same school district who were not involved in this scandal. What a tragedy.  Administrators, testing coaches, teachers, and even the former superintendent apparently got together to raise test scores.  Nothing wrong with that except for the way it was done and for whom it ultimately benefited.
