Community members had tough questions for Dougherty County's School Board Chairman about the state's investigation into possible CRCT tampering. 

David Maschke answered questions after speaking to the Dougherty County Kiwanis Club Monday.

He said the state hampered the system's investigation by not allowing them to see some of the answer sheets in question.

Maschke feels the system's investigation was sufficient, but he expects state investigators will question students and teachers.

 "I think they're going to get the same answers that our investigators got when they questioned the teachers and other school personnel," said David Maschke. "They have to remember not only was the investigation conducted by James Wilson a board consultant but we also had the police department, the school system police department interviewing people as well as a representative from the PSC."

 Maschke also said if it adds an extra layer of credibility to the findings, the board's all for it. He also said if wrongdoing is found, those individuals will be fired immediately.
