Atlanta (CNN) – Georgia’s Professional Standards Commission (PSC) has revoked the teaching permits of 67 more educators implicated in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal. Some of the teachers were barred from the classroom for two years; others had their certificates permanently revoked, according to WSB.
The PSC now has 100 cases left to review connected with the cheating allegations. It has made recommendations for 83 cases so far. The names of the teachers who have lost certification will not be made public until all appeals are complete.
Earlier this week, an APS tribunal voted to terminate an elementary school teacher.
Another has already been fired, one has retired and 24 have resigned, according to WSB.
Officials are under pressure to make decisions stemming from this case quickly, as the district may be forced to offer contracts to accused teachers who haven’t been let go by May 15. In addition, implicated teachers whose cases have not yet been addressed remain on the APS payroll, costing the district hundreds of thousands of dollars each month.
