Former Atlanta superintendent, 34 others indicted in test cheating scandal

April 1, 2013
Prosecutors allege that Beverly Hall and other educators conspired to cheat, conceal cheating or retaliate against whistleblowers.

Former Atlanta School Superintendent Beverly Hall has been accused in a criminal indictment of leading a corrupt school system that used students’ test scores to earn bonuses if they rose, or intimidation and termination if they fell. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says a Fulton County, Ga., grand jury has returned a 65-count indictment against Hall and the 34 other district employees who allegedly conspired to make the school district look more successful than it was.
