Not Guilty Pleas Entered In Atlanta Cheating Case

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A not guilty plea was entered on behalf of the former superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools, who is charged in a broad conspiracy to cheat on standardized tests to mask poor student performance for personal gain.

A not guilty plea was entered on behalf of Beverly Hall by the court during a hearing Friday.

Hall’s attorneys have promised to mount a strong defense, saying Hall was not aware of or involved in any cheating. The judge set a trial date for May 5, 2014.

A grand jury indicted Hall and 34 other educators in March, accusing them of involvement in a conspiracy to cheat, conceal cheating or retaliate against whistleblowers.

Several other educators appeared in court and not guilty pleas were entered on their behalf.re)
