Atlanta Public Schools Cheating Scandal

Hosted by

Five of 35 indicted educators turned themselves in today on charges of turning Atlanta's public school system into a criminal conspiracy to raise standardized student test scores for financial gain and professional recognition. Beverly Hall, National School Superintendent of 2009, could face 45 years in prison. We hear more from Alan Judd, one of the investigative reporters at the Atlanta Journal Constitution, which broke the story, and Bob Schaeffer, public education director for the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, a nonprofit in Boston.
