ATLANTA (AP) -- Investigators say more than 100 educators should
face scrutiny or punishment after they found evidence of cheating
at 58 schools in Atlanta.

A panel convened to investigate the cheating allegations
released a summary of its findings Monday to city school officials.
It did not name the educators suspected of cheating.

Its review showed that 78 employees suspected of changing
student answers on a statewide test worked at a dozen schools that
require major changes.

Investigative panel chairman Gary Price said the remaining
educators appear to have acted independently.

The Atlanta Board of Education began the probe after the state
ordered that 191 schools in Georgia be examined because of unusual
numbers of erasures on a 2009 test.

    What a terrible message to send, if this leads to massive student failure at the high school and higher education level, Georgia will not only surpass Mississippi and Arizona as the "dumbest state" in educational statistician's circles, it will also gain notoriety as the "phoniest state", these cheaters are saboteurs of the state's future, they should be summarily dismissed and forbidden to teach in GA.
