3 Atlanta School Officials Sue Over Cheating Probe

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) –  Three Atlanta Public Schools administrators say in a lawsuit that the school district ruined their reputations as details of an investigation of cheating allegations in the system became public.

Executive directors Sharon Davis Williams, Michael Pitts and Tamara Cotman say the district violated state employment laws and breached job contracts after the July release of a report on a state cheating investigation.

Atlanta Public Schools placed the educators on paid leave after the state investigation and took steps to fire the three educators. They say they’ve been denied opportunities to defend themselves.

School system spokesman Keith Bromery he couldn’t comment further on the case because of the pending litigation.

The investigation found cheating at 44 schools and implicated about 180 educators.
