Former Dougherty County School Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley held a news conference at the law offices of the Perry & Walters on Westover Blvd.  Tuesday morning to discuss the CRCT cheating allegations. 

She said that she met with former Attorney General Mike Bowers, investigator Bob Wilson, and two other investigators for three hours yesterday to discuss her own background, and the policies and procedures that were in place in Albany at the time the cheating was said to have occurred.

She said that she stands by her staff and does not believe that widespread cheating happened.

She says that the data the school system collected does not support the allegations.

However, Whatley encourages all educators to cooperate with the state's probe, and to answer questions fully.

Whatley lives in Cuthbert, and is a member of a Phoebe Putney Hospital board.
