Justina Collins could tell something wasn’t right when her third-grade daughter excelled on standardized tests after posting the lowest scores in her class on other tests. Another parent, Rhoda Spence, never suspected her third-grader’s test scores were inflated until years afterward.

When both mothers later learned that Atlanta educators had falsified test results, their children’s abnormal scores finally made sense: Their families were victimized by the nation’s largest cheating scandal.

Their daughters are among the thousands of students who may have been harmed when educators faked test scores to meet their goals instead of reporting accurate results.
