Atlanta school officials say 41 educators accused in a cheating scandal have resigned or retired.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that, according to district data, 13 educators have left since the state issued a scathing report detailing cheating. The report alleged cheating on standardized tests dating back to 2001 in nearly half of the district’s 100 schools.
Officials say 28 educators left before the report was issued. The report implicated 178 educators in what is the nation’s largest cheating scandal.
Of those educators who have left, 13 are school principals implicated in the cheating investigation.
Interim schools Superintendent Erroll Davis sent a message to employees named in the report earlier this month demanding they resign or be fired. School employees who are fired are entitled to a hearing under state law.
