BUSH ST LOUIS

ATLANTA – A cheating scandal is roiling Atlanta Public Schools, casting into doubt the work of hundreds of students in at least 12 of the mostly poor, mostly minority district’s elementary and middle schools.

The allegations surfaced earlier this month as part of a statewide review of every standardized test taken in Georgia elementary and middle schools in spring 2009. The problems have drawn comparisons to scandals elsewhere that experts say reflect growing pressure to meet federal No Child Left Behind standards.

Atlanta Superintendent Beverly Hall, who was named 2009 Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators, in large part for her work increasing the district’s test scores, stressed that an independent investigation cleared the majority of the district’s 100 schools.
