Principal resigns from DC school in cheating probe

WASHINGTON (AP) — The principal of a District of Columbia charter school is resigning after allegations of cheating on the school's 2012 standardized tests. According to a document obtained by The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/17s7sKO ) the principal's resignation from Meridian Public Charter School is one of 10 steps officials are taking to ensure cheating does not occur again. The principal is set to leave the school June 26. The school's trustees decided not to fire any teachers. They decided any wrongdoing on the part of teachers was "more attributable to inadequate training and oversight," rather than being a conscious effort. Five classrooms were implicated for possible cheating, representing 40 percent of tested students. Teachers and proctors allegedly explained questions and urged students to review answers. Students also had a high number of wrong-to-right erasures. ___ Information from: The Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com
