A cheating scandal at Grady High School in Midtown involving the football team has thrust Atlanta Public Schools back into the national spotlight, just as the district was working to get beyond a standardized test cheating scandal that is still playing out in court.
APS this week is grabbing headlines due to accusations that parents, students, and perhaps even some officials at Grady High School in Midtown lied so that out-of-district students could play football at the school.
A story posted on USA Today’s website is headlined “New cheating allegations hit an Atlanta school – this time against parents and students.”
Superintendent Erroll Davis said this week that 14 of the 58 players on the Grady’s football team used faked addresses to enroll at the school. The school is known for its winning football team.
