Your friendly Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal update

Fallout from the state's investigation into the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal continues without a hitch.

State Attorney General Sam Olens yesterday scolded the APS board for violating Open Meetings and public records laws during and after the controversy surrounding widespread cheating on students' tests. Rather than prosecute the violations, Olens agreed with new Superintendent Errol Davis to place the board on probation for one year.

The Georgia Board of Education today opted not to boot members of the APS school board, instead giving them until November to continue fighting to keep the beleaguered system's accreditation.

Best video of the day: 11 Alive has an excellent and thorough sit-down interview with Mike Bowers and Bob Wilson, the state's two investigators. They say the scandal was a "disaster" and give more details about their conversations with educators and thoughts about former Superintendent, now veteran interview dodger Beverly Hall's leadership. Read the full story here.
