ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Dozens of Georgia teachers are now being investigated for suspected cheating on standardized tests. That does not include any Dougherty County teachers because the school system still hasn't provided the state with enough information to determine whether there was test tampering here.
The Governor's Office of Student Achievement announced Wednesday it's forwarding the cases against about 80 educators to the Professional Standards Commission. The Dougherty County system's initial investigation into problems with last year's CRCTs lacked details about how tests were administered in flagged classrooms.
The state ordered the system to conduct a more thorough investigation. Two weeks ago, Superintendent Joshua Murfree asked for more time but still hasn't told GOSA when that work will be complete.
