Georgia District Refers 29 in Test-Cheating Probe
Officials with Georgia's DeKalb County schools said last week that they would ask the state to investigate 29 current and former employees as part of a test-cheating probe. Twenty-four employees—including teachers and principals—have been reassigned to duties outside their schools pending the outcome of the state's investigation, district officials said. The 97,000-student district is part of a statewide probe into possible cheating on 2009 standardized tests.
