Atlanta schools work to help kids left behind

Special to SEGAZINE

The Atlanta Public Schools system is spending millions on remediation programs to help those directly affected by a massive cheating scandal and others who’ve simply fallen behind.

Thirty-five former Atlanta educators, including former Superintendent Beverly Hall, have been named in a criminal indictment alleging test scores were changed between 2006 and 2009 to inflate student performance.

While that case is pending, the Atlanta Public Schools has been working to give students the help they need. Current Superintendent Erroll Davis says students didn’t get the help they needed because their test scores weren’t properly recorded.

In addition to remediation program, the district has implemented mandatory ethics training and installed “automatic trigger points,” which uses technology to identify outliers in test scores.
