After rampant cheating was uncovered in Atlanta schools, former Atlanta schools superintendent Beverly L. Hall is left to to defend her reputation.
“I will survive this,” Hall said in her first public interview since the scandal broke. She also maintains that she knew nothing about the cheating and does not condone it.
The New York Times Reports:
During her reign, scholarship money delivered to Atlanta students jumped to $129 million from $9 million. Graduation rates, while still not stellar, rose to 66 percent, from 39 percent. Seventy-seven schools were either built or renovated, at a cost of about $1 billion.
