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.

    18 of 35 educators had turned themselves in at the Fulton County Jail to face charges including racketeering, theft by taking and making false statements about their roles in an alleged plot to falsify students' standardized tests.
    Oh yes. Just like Sandy Hook, if this thing here didn't surface, taxpayer would be none the wiser to entrust these types with "handguns" to help carry out thier graff and corruption (heck with the kids safety).

      I am unsure what Sandy Hook and this scandal have to do with each other, unless it is that they both involved schools.

    That school administrators, teachers, and students cheat has become irrelevant to education's role in the USA's economy and in society: even graduate degrees no longer signify appreciable education. Many citizens with earned doctorates cannot form a sentence in their first language.

      Hence, Chomsky's conclusion on American education being designed to conform to it iindoctrinational system; the dumbing down of American society.

    @ JIF:
    You forgot to clarify the fact that it is no longer necessary to cheat to earn a doctorate or two. No child left behind, you know.

      No child left behind is right @ PBF@SAC ©™, Anyone can get an education these days as long as you follow the program.

    Fear, hate, lack of knowledge = the submission to the MIC (Submitting to Satan and his system) all culminating to a one world Government and religion.
