HIGH RANKING ADMINISTRATOR PLEADS GULITY IN APS CHEATING CASE
ATLANTA, GA. Former APS Chief Human Resource Officer Millicent Few has entered a guilty plea for her role in the Atlanta Public School cheating scandal. Few, who was former Superintendent Beverly Hall’s Director of Human Resources and a member of Hall’s Executive Cabinet, now becomes the state’s most valuable witness.
A direct link to Hall, Few will testify against her former boss. Few stated she observed Hall commit a crime by ordering the destruction of internal investigative reports, which concluded “a substantial likelihood that cheating occurred” during the summer 2009 Deerwood Academy CRCT.
“We applaud the courage displayed by Ms. Few for not only pleading guilty, agreeing to serve as a witness for the state, but also for providing key information regarding the operation of this conspiracy to rob our children of their basic right to a quality education.”
Under the terms of her agreement, Few was sentenced to 12 months on probation and ordered to perform 250 hours of community service, testify truthfully when called as a witness, and pay $800.00 in restitution to the Atlanta Public Schools. She must also submit a letter of apology to the court.
