SORT BY Relevancy
We have remained silent concerning the Atlanta Public School scandal so that "justice" could take its course. Now, that the "truth" has been revealed and several Atlanta public schools administrators and teachers were adjudged guilty by a jury of their peers and sentenced for racketeering convictions related to a massive standardized test cheating scandal, Attorney Sherri Jefferson will share her thoughts on the "Real Lesson to be Learned."
This episode will discuss how cheating adversely affects the lives of our children, the moral and legal issues of the jury decisions, the tactics that still exist at and through the Atlanta Public School that promotes the environment that is conducive to the conduct exhibited by their adminsitrators and teachers.
Attorney Jefferson will discuss how the jury verdict will not change the APS culture.

Last Tuesday, eight Atlanta Public Schools employees were sentenced to prison in one of the largest school cheating scandals in American history. The educators were convicted of racketeering — a felony typically reserved for mob bosses, drug kingpins and terrorists.
While similar scandals have occurred in 39 different states and Washington, D.C., the offenders have rarely been prosecuted as criminals. Yet in an unprecedented move, the prosecutors in Atlanta charged the educators under Georgia's "Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act" — a law passed in 1980 specifically to combat the scourge of organized crime. RICO laws, which EXIST at the federal level and in 33 states, empower prosecutors to go after the leaders of organized crime who order but do not personally commit crimes such as robbery, money laundering and murder. Individuals convicted under such laws can face up to 20 years in prison.
Did the charges fit the crime? Was this organized crime? or simply unethical? Are we so familiar with justice not being served that when it is we think its unjust or even racism. Is this a prime example of overciminization in America? And most importantly What about the CHILDREN?
Call in and let's discuss this case and the educational system in America today. How can we improve or change the systemic and blatant disregard for education and justice for the real victims in this case. Come Get on the COUCH and let's talk about this and much more!!!!
