Former Atlanta Schools superintendent charged with racketeering over cheating scandal

  • 65 the number of charges the former Atlanta Schools superintendent, Beverly L. Hall, faces as part of a wide-reaching cheating scandal, where cheating was allowed or encouraged as a way to get higher scores on Georgia’s Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests, and bonuses were offered for higher scores. She could face as many as 45 years in jail, and with a bond of $7.5 million, it’s clear they’re throwing the book at her.
  • 35 the number of other employees of the district that have also been charged in the case, including six principals and 14 teachers. As many as 178 employees were named as taking part in the cheating over 44 schools, according to a 2011 investigation. The case was first uncovered by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2009. source
