Report names Pennsylvania schools to be investigated for test cheating

    Across Pennsylvania, 89 schools in 40 districts have been ordered to conduct internal investigations following a report that the schools may have cheated on their PSSA tests in 2009.

    State Secretary of Education Ronald Tomalis has given the schools 30 days to submit their findings. Of the 89 schools, nearly 30 are in Philadelphia — the most in any district, but several other local districts have been named, as well. The Public School Notebook has the full list.
