Five Philadelphia educators, including an elementary principal, face multiple felony charges for their alleged role in cheating on Pennsylvania state exams over a period of five years.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane last week outlined the charges—including perjury, tampering with public records, forgery, and criminal conspiracy—against four teachers and the principal.

District officials had already fired three high school principals and said more than 130 other current and former educators faced disciplinary actions for their alleged involvement in cheating.
