We are sorry to sound like this but we are very happy this is happening. We almost can’t believe that the educators are really going to pay in jail time for their participation in one of the country’s biggest school cheating scandals. Though this is a sad time, people have to take account for the misdeeds that they did which is depriving the students from a good education.
Read below more about the those who have to do jail time:
Beverly Hall, Former Superintendent of Atlanta PublicBeverly Hall resigned from her position in 2011 after a state investigation into large, unexplained test score gains in some Atlanta schools. She has denied any role in the cheating scandal.

By 10:00 p.m., 27 of 35 educators had turned themselves in at the Fulton County Jail to face charges including racketeering, theft by taking and making false statements about their roles in an alleged plot to falsify students’ standardized tests. Eight of them had been released on bond late Tuesday, the Fulton County Sheriff’s office said.
