109 Atlanta Educators Suspected of Cheating

ATLANTA- Investigators say more than 100 educators should face scrutiny or punishment after they found evidence of cheating at 58 schools in Atlanta.

A panel convened to investigate the cheating allegations released a summary of its findings Monday to city school officials. It did not name the educators suspected of cheating.

Its review showed that 78 employees suspected of changing student answers on a statewide test worked at a dozen schools that require major changes.

Investigative panel chairman Gary Price said the remaining educators appear to have acted independently.

The Atlanta Board of Education began the probe after the state ordered that 191 schools in Georgia be examined because of unusual numbers of erasures on a 2009 test.
