Six more educators indicted in the test-cheating case in the Atlanta public schools pleaded guilty in a hearing last week, agreeing to lesser charges in exchange for their cooperation with prosecutors.

At the same hearing, former Superintendent Beverly Hall—a one-time national superintendent of the year—stood by her not-guilty plea in the racketeering conspiracy and will proceed toward a jury trial later this year, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

A Fulton County, Ga., jury indicted 35 educators last year in a sprawling conspiracy case that accused them of changing students' standardized-test scores or giving correct answers in an effort to make the district's academic performance look better than it was.
