35 indicted in Atlanta cheating scandal

Thirty-five Atlanta Public Schools educators and administrators were indicted Friday on a myriad of charges in connection with alleged cheating in standardized testing, one of the largest cheating scandals to hit the nation's public education system.

Among those indicted by a Fulton County, Georgia, grand jury was Beverly Hall, the former schools superintendent who gained national recognition in 2009 for turning around Atlanta's school system.

There were 65 counts in the indictment, which included charges of racketeering, influencing a witness, theft by taking and making false statements or writings.
