Lawyers say Hall didn't scheme to pad bonuses

ATLANTA (AP) - Lawyers for former Atlanta schools superintendent Beverly Hall say allegations that she participated in a scheme to inflate test scores to pad her bonuses are false and misleading.

In a statement released Monday, Hall's lawyers took issue with media reports that they say implied that Hall received more than $500,000 in bonuses based on test scores. Hall's lawyers say her bonuses were based on at least 25 performance objectives established by the Atlanta Board of Education, most of which had nothing to do with test results.

A Fulton County grand jury last month indicted Hall and 34 subordinates, accusing them of involvement in a broad conspiracy to cheat, conceal cheating or retaliate against whistleblowers. Prosecutors say the educators were driven at least in part by bonuses for improved student performance.
