None of the Above: The Untold Story of the Atlanta Public Schools Cheating Scandal, Corporate Greed, and the Criminalization of Educators.
In 2013, 35 educators in the Atlanta Public Schools were charged with racketeering and conspiracy for allegedly changing students' answers on standardized tests. All but one was black. The youngest of the accused, Shani Robinson, had taught for only 3 years and was a new mother when she was wrongfully convicted and faced up to 25 years in prison. Shani and her coauthor, journalist Anna Simonton, are coming to Arcadia to talk about how black children in Atlanta were being deprived long before some teachers allegedly changed the answers on their students' tests.
A book signing will follow the book talk and a light lunch will be provided.
