Atlanta teacher accused of cheating: 'I'm completely innocent'

(CNN) - Thirty-five educators were indicted this year in a cheating scandal that rocked the Atlanta Public Schools and drew national attention. A judge recently lifted a gag order in the case, and two Atlanta teachers accused of cheating on standardized tests shared their perspectives on the charges.

"I'm struggling. I'm still struggling," elementary school teacher Angela Williamson told CNN. "To have to continue to fight to defend my name, my character, my good teaching reputation that I once had, it seems like all that has been stolen from me."

    Hopefully the two teachers I saw on TV were on their way to other jobs before this issue. I would expect any teacher to demonstrate better language skills. Both sounded like they were kids that have been skipping school during English class. If these 2 teach like they speak English the Atlanta school system is in big trouble.
