3 more Ga. educators plead guilty in cheating case

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Fulton County prosecutors say three more former educators with Atlanta Public Schools have pleaded guilty in a wide-ranging test cheating case.

Prosecutors say eleven former educators have now pleaded guilty. That leaves 23 defendants still fighting the charges, including former Superintendent Beverly Hall.

On Friday, prosecutors said former testing coordinators Sheridan Rogers and Francis Mack along with former teacher Tameka Goodson pleaded guilty to obstruction. Each was sentenced to one year on probation under the terms of the plea deal.

Prosecutors say Mack acknowledged she had withheld information about a fellow employee changing student answers on standardized tests, while Rogers said she was ordered to provide teachers with access to completed answer sheets.

Prosecutors say Goodson had witnessed two others change student answers from wrong to right.
