DeKalb County Educators Indicted in Cheating Scandal

The Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast partner WXIA is reporting that three former DeKalb County educators were indicted for cheating on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT).

According to WXIA, former Cedar Grove Middle School principal Agnes Flanagan, former Rock Chapel Elementary School principal Angela Jennings, and former Stoneview Elementary school assistant principal Derek Wooten were indicted on Tuesday for charges similar to the 35 Atlanta Public School educators who were indicted earlier this month.

Additionally, the broadcast station reports the indictments said:

Jennings changed attendance reports to keep poor-performing students from taking tests.

Flanagan is accused of altering test scores and encouraging others to change answers.

Wooten is accused of changing attendance records to reflect better performance.
