Teachers and Administrators of Atlanta Public School have barred from the school and lose their teaching certificates. This is the primary steps about those 11 teachers after the investigations.
8 teachers received two year suspension and other tree administrators had lost their certification revoked permanently. The Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GPSC) confirmed voted to sanction this punishment today.
The educators of that school were not identified. They will be notified soon and have the chance to appeal the decision before it is final.
In the Atlanta Public Schools cheating case, this is the first formal punishment handed down. About 180 Atlanta Public Schools employees (including teachers and administrators) were implicated and test tampering was uncovered at 44 Atlanta Public schools.
The GPSC expects to hear cases through January, 2012. The range of punishments involving certification can range from a warning notice to a certificate revocation. That punishment is differ from Atlanta Public Schools’ efforts to fire the educators who are linked to possible criminal charges or cheating.
A revocation severely fall an Atlanta educator’s public school career, as the sanction would show up in a national database searchable by other US states.
