Cheating at George Washington Elementary
The discovery of cheating at George Washington Elementary, besides being horribly sad, is a great who-done-it mystery. Investigators were more like detectives who combed through eye-popping amounts of erase marks on tests to uncover what they weren't able to reveal by interviewing staff.
They also sifted through a year's worth of emails and did complicated test score analysis to find a pattern that could only lead to one conclusion.
There's still no proof of who was responsible for the cheating, but Andres Alonso is holding the principal accountable because she is in charge of the school and she should have known, he believes, of any cheating that was that pervasive.
