Atlanta educators implicated in a widespread test cheating scandal may have to wait several more months before finding out whether they will lose their teaching license as a result of test tampering.
The state Professional Standards Commission is expected to hand down the first formal punishments in the Atlanta Public School System's CRCT cheating scandal on Thursday.
State investigators probing alleged CRCT cheating within the Dougherty County School system said Wednesday "we have confirmed evidence of cheating in every school we have been to."
