Meria Carstarphen, who has been schools superintendent in Austin, Texas, for five years, has been tapped by the Atlanta school board to lead its school system.

She has also been a superintendent in St. Paul, Minn., and was the chief accountability officer in the District of Columbia public schools.

The 47,000-student Atlanta district has been embroiled for several years in a cheating scandal that last year led to the indictment of 35 educators, including retired Superintendent Beverly Hall.
