Atlanta cheating scandal fallout starts

Education Week reports (subscription?) that the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, which rules on teacher licenses in that state, has voted to remove licensure for the first group of eight teachers and three administrators involved in the huge Atlanta, Georgia school testing scandal.

Meanwhile, the fates of those involved in the ACT testing scandal in Perry County, Kentucky, remain under review by the Kentucky Educational Professional Standards Board (EPSB).

I don’t think that means accountability isn’t coming in the Kentucky case. I just think the EPSB is being very careful to assemble a tight case as it deals with the relatively new area of forensic testing investigation.
