Overview

Cheating But Not Cheated: A Memoir of the Atlanta Public Schools Cheating Scandal by Christopher Waller, LaDawn B. Jones

The Atlanta Public School's cheating scandal is a case study for school districts, educators, and students studying education, journalism, and ethics. The five year ordeal culminating in a seven month trial was a matter of international scandal all kicked off from a newspaper investigation. CHEATING BUT NOT CHEATED gives readers the details of the matter from an insider's point of view. Christopher Waller was held out by the APS superintendent and later the media as the "poster child" of the cheating scandal.

Christopher Waller's career in education highlights how socio-economics, an over-emphasis on testing, and a passion for not being at the bottom of the pack led to the cheating scandal. CHEATING is a lesson in leadership, integrity, morale and community involvement. Readers, policy makers, and educators cannot know the full story of the testing scandal until they have heard the story from those who experienced it.
