Atlanta schools' ex-chief surrenders

Beverly Hall, the former superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools, was among the educators who surrendered to authorities Tuesday after being indicted by a grand jury in a cheating scandal that rocked the district and drew national attention.

Hall resigned from her position in 2011 after a state investigation into large, unexplained test score gains in some Atlanta schools.

She has denied any role in the cheating scandal.

    @ Mary:
    I agree with you that a lack of knowledge is undesirable, but if you have proof of the existence of "Satan," then you'll never cry again. You'll be richer than His Holiness Francis.

      Sheryl explained to me that you were too young to attend film viewings in 1964, so you are unaware of DR. STRANGELOVE.
      In case you want to see it now, your question regarding my nom de plume is important to the plot, and you wouldn't us to give it away.

      Ah, lo vedo! "Nunya" is Urbano.
      You have to view "PBF" in context of the 1964 film.

    Y'all must have some strange schools in your area cuz ive not noticed the things youre describing. Here you have to know the things you learn in 1st and 2nd grade BEFORE you can even START kindergarten! And it doesnt get any easier the older you get either. High school is not a walk in the park!
