An Atlanta teacher accused of cheating says she's ready to defend herself against claims she changed student answers.
Camille Neely was a third-grade teacher at Gideons Elementary, where a special state investigation claims widespread cheating took place in 2009 and other years. Atlanta Public Schools is trying to fire Neely for allegedly changing answers on state exams and lying about her involvement to special investigators.
Atlanta Public Schools is in the process of holding termination hearings to get some 90 educators accused of cheating off the payroll. As of late April, two educators had been terminated after a tribunal hearing and 50 intent-to-terminate letters had been sent to accused educators.
State investigators claim about 180 educators were involved in cheating in 44 Atlanta schools.

What a wonderful example she’s set for the kids. Saw on tv that 70% of students already cheat,,,and are proud of it. What a great future the country has. sarc/
Went to the source and sure enough, Ms. Neely is a minority and I’d bet 100 dollars that the students she was allegedly “helping” were also minority kids.
She didn’t teach and/or they didn’t learn and the problem is that many if not most minority children are falling further behind the norms.

Me first! It’s ok because she is a lib.
At least no child was left behind.

All of Neelys classes were flagged for high wrong-to-right erasures, according to the report. But she could not explain to state investigators why that was the case.
At Friday's hearing attorneys did allow one witness to testify: GBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Eve Rodgers talked about her interview with Neely during the investigation. Her testimony supported the claims in the report.
Neely's attorney, Michael King, maintained the 20-year teaching veteran did not knowingly commit any testing violations.
