Carver Staff Resign Over Cheating

School Board Votes To Accept Resignations

August 07, 2018 - 8:42 am

Richmond, VA (1140WRVA.com) – The principal and 5 other school staff members caught up in the SOL cheating scandal at Richmond’s Carver Elementary have resigned.  The city’s school board voted to accept the resignations.  A state Department of Education investigation found teachers inappropriately helped some students correct wrong answers on tests.  In one case, a student revealed how a teacher smiled when they got the right answer and frowned when the answer was wrong.

 

Last week Superintendent Jason Kamras called for their firing before the school year, and also wants the state to revoke their teaching credentials.  Following last night’s school board vote, Kamras called the staff’s actions “…a betrayal of trust.”
