One of the Atlanta Public School officials who was convicted in the largest national school cheating scandal in U.S. history – appeared before a Judge today:
Bullock – who was the second convicted APS educator to address Judge Jerry Baxter at Monday’s sentencing hearing — asked if he could instead provide community service and be placed on probation.
“I’m appealing to the compassionate side of you,” Bullock said. “I know you’re a man of compassion.” “I ask you to grant leniency to me… My livelihood is gone.” (link)
