By CBS 8 News

Alabama's schools superintendent says a state investigation into grade-changing allegations at Montgomery Public Schools has turned up "significant findings."

 

Superintendent of Education Tommy Bice tells The Montgomery Advertiser

 

Bice said the findings uncovered in the investigation are serious enough that he planned to spend part of the upcoming holiday period reviewing the documents.

 

State officials have been investigating allegations of widespread cheating in the Montgomery system.

 

The Advertiser has reported that employees who entered computer data at two Montgomery high schools say they witnessed school administrators violating school policy to help students achieve higher grades with little or no work.

 

that he has been provided with a large number of documents related to the findings, which he called "troubling."

Luke 12:1-3 Oh how one little voice is trampled on by the powers that be but when all of the little voices unite no power shall overcome the power that comes from above. It's sad that the lives of the young men and women will forever be affected by these self centered power hungry public representatives of the Montgomery Public School system. It is time to do a necessary assessment of your district school representative and see examine how they have the best interest of your child in mind. If they have no children in the public school system and having one in magnet doesn't count then what is it that you are voting for. If the school your child goes to isn't suffice for them then why should they be suffice for your vote. We need leaders who fight for our children who care more about the quality of lives of our children and not the quantity of money in their pockets. Let your voice be heard unite stand up for your child, be their voice before they are left behind while politics reign.
