GEORGIA — Cheating has been uncovered in at least five more Georgia schools after an investigative team made up of Richard Hyde, who first uncovered widespread cheating in Atlanta schools, as well as workers from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation expanded their search to schools outside of Atlanta.
Analysis of test erasures are not conclusive, so investigators have sought confessions and in some cases even used the aid of a polygraph machine to detect cheating.
“We have evidence of cheating in every school we have been to,” Hyde told The Huffington Post. The information, he said, would be enough for him to begin making arrests. He added that the investigation was far from over. He started investigating in Dougherty County in July and still has eight schools left to examine.
