Richard Quartarone – leader of SEACS – quoted in WSJ


On Saturday, the Wall Street Journal quoted Richard Quartarone, president of Southeast Atlanta Communities for Schools (SEACS) as part of their story on the acquittal of Tamara Cottman in the Atlanta cheating scandal case.

Richard Quartarone, president of an education-policy group called Southeast Atlanta Communities for Schools and a parent with two children in the city’s public schools, said Friday, “I hope the prosecution is able to shore up their cases as everything moves forward. If there are no guilty verdicts, that is just horrible.”

While Ms. Cottman was not charged with actual cheating, she was charged and acquitted of influencing a witness. However, during Ms. Cottman’s trial, a number of witnesses admitted to widespread “wrong to right” error corrections.

I share Mr. Quartarone’s sentiments.
