Black Clergy Blasts Atlanta Test Cheating Investigation
(WXIA-TV) — Some of Atlanta’s leading African-American preachers fired a multi-barreled blast on Monday at the now criminal investigation into cheating on standardized tests in some city public schools. They called it a “costly witch hunt”. “We expect our prosecutors to go after criminals and not our educators,” said Dr. Richard Cobble, President of the Concerned Black Clergy. He and more than 30 others blasted the investigation as “disturbing, reprehensible and misguided”.
