Perdue Says Race No Issue In CRCT Investigation
(Georgia Public Broadcasting) — Governor Perdue today answered a charge by a group of black Atlanta pastors that the State’s investigation into cheating on the CRCT is a “witch hunt” against black teachers. The clergy is protesting possible criminal charges against educators. Fulton County’s District Attorney, Paul Howard, said he will seek criminal prosecutions if warranted in the cheating allegations at some Atlanta public schools. The Group called Concerned Black Clergy said the allegations unfairly target African-American teachers. Governor Perdue says that’s not the case.
