The principal of a D.C. charter school is resigning after allegations of cheating on the school's 2012 standardized tests. According to a document obtained by The Washington Post, the principal's resignation from Meridian Public Charter School is one of 10 steps officials are taking to keep it from happening again. The principal, who was not named, is set to leave the school on June 26.
The school's trustees did not fire any teachers, citing any wrongdoing on their part was, "attributable to inadequate training and oversight.''
Five classrooms, representing 40 percent of tested students, are implicated for possible cheating.
