ATLANTA,None - The Georgia Professional Standards Commission has sanctioned five Atlanta Public School teachers involved in the district’s test cheating scandal.
Only one of the five educators is still with the district, but APS spokesman Keith Bromery said the license issue can affect whether they can teach elsewhere in Georgia.
About 100 APS employees are on administrative leave with pay while CRCT cheating allegations are sorted out. Kelly Henson, the commission’s chief executive, told Regan the allegations involve “erasing answers and putting in correct answers. It involves voice inflections. It involves providing questions to students prior to the test.”
The accused teachers have 30 days to appeal the sanctions.
The commission is addressing the cases as they're cleared by the Fulton County district attorney. The District Attorney had been investigating the five teachers but decided not to take action against them.
