In one of the nation’s largest cheating scandals, nearly 200 Atlanta educators were suspected of erasing and correcting student answers on standardized tests in order to boost scores. Eleven of the educators convicted of conspiracy are just now beginning their appeals, more than two years after they were sentenced to prison.

In this video, originally featured on PBS Newshour, reporter Lisa Stark catches up with those affected by the scandal, including an educator, a judge, a district attorney, and students who are about to graduate.
