APS To Pay Teachers Fighting Dismissal
Updated: 9:31 am EDT July 21, 2011
ATLANTA -- They may be out of the classroom this fall, but scores of teachers targeted for firing in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal will continue to receive their paychecks.
Wednesday was the deadline for 178 educators accused of misreporting CRCT test scores to resign or face termination. Bromley told Channel 2's Tom Regan the tribunal will hear evidence in the case, and then make a recommendation to the superintendent on whether employee terminations go forward or get dismissed.
While their appeal is under way, the school system will have to pay the salaries of accused teachers, as well as their replacements. Hiring scores of new teachers will be a challenge.
"We will do everything we need to do to be fully staffed by Aug. 8, for the new school year," said Bromley.

"All of them will have the right of a hearing so they can go before a tribunal of at least three people with education experience," said APS spokesman Keith Bromley.
Like kids or parents?
So, what do the Amish need with that kind of money anyway?
Dos anyone really believe that Atlanta will fire 178 mostly black teachers?
I mean, get real.
Leave it to the MSM operatives to withhold information relevant to an informed opinion.
