Reblogged from LARRY FERLAZZO’S WEBSITES OF THE DAY…
The verdict has been announced for the defendants in the Atlanta test-cheating scandal.
I can’t excuse their actions, but the charges and trial sure seem to be an enormous over-reaction, and I can’t not wonder if the fact that all of the accused were African-American entered into the equation.
Much has been written about the case over the past few years, and I have accumulated some of those articles at The Best Posts & Articles About The Atlanta Testing Scandal.
I thought the verdict itself was worth a separate “Best” list. Feel free to add suggestions in the comments section:
