Trial of 12 set to begin in Atlanta schools cheating case

SEGAZINE

More than a year after 35 Atlanta Public Schools educators were indicted in a school cheating scandal that rocked the system, 12 people are set to go to trial Monday.

The former administrators, principals, testing coordinators and teachers all face racketeering charges. Individual charges include influencing witnesses and lying to state investigators.

Prosecutors have said that more than 30 educators participated in a conspiracy to cheat on standardized tests dating back to 2005, motivated by pressure to meet federal and APS standards and receive bonuses or keep their jobs.
