The criminal trial of former Atlanta educators for roles they are accused of playing in a widespread cheating scandal is set to open this month, but former schools Superintendent Beverly Hall's failing health has postponed her trial indefinitely.

Ms. Hall is being treated for Stage IV breast cancer. Media reports have described her condition as grave, and one of her defense lawyers said in a hearing that her life expectancy is uncertain, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

A one-time national Superintendent of the Year, Ms. Hall is one of 13 educators to plead not guilty to racketeering charges that she either knew about or ignored widespread cheating on Georgia's state tests.
