35 Educators in Atlanta Have Until Midnight to Turn Themselves In to Police for Massive Cheating Scandal

Thirty-five Atlanta educators have until midnight to turn themselves in to police in connection with a massive cheating scandal. The administrators and teachers are alleged to have cheated on standardized tests in order to win performance-based bonuses. They are said to have erased students’ incorrect answers and written in the correct ones. Beverly Hall, the superintendent and alleged ring leader of the scandal, was awarded $500,000 in performance bonuses and is accused of having pressured teachers into manipulating test scores.

Hall is facing 45 years in prison and is likely to be held on a bond of $7.5 million.

Defenders of the educators are blaming programs like No Child Left Behind for placing too much significance on test scores. So, who deserves the blame – the teachers or the tests? Watch the debate from today’s Your World.
