Bridgeport (Conn.) district drops consultant with ties to Atlanta cheating scandal

Feb. 16, 2012
Millicent Few resigned last year as human resources director for the Atlanta district

From The Connecticut Post: A consultant brought in by Interim Bridgeport (Conn.) Schools Superintendent Paul Vallas to help overhaul the school district left days after she arrived when it was learned she was caught up in a test-cheating scandal in Atlanta. Millicent Few worked for two days in Bridgeport before Vallas let her go. Vallas says he wants to avoid controversy. Few, who had been human resources director for the Atlanta school system, was one of many who resigned in July amid a standardized-test cheating scandal that involved 178 teachers and principals and 44 schools.
