Directed by Jodi Gomes (USA, 2018, 90 min.). Digital.

In 2009, 1,176 Atlanta teachers were investigated for cheating on tests; 35 were indicted, 12 went to trial, and 11 were found guilty on RICO charges, which are typically reserved for the mafia and drug lords. The guilty, serving 30-year sentences, finally break their silence in this tell-all, controversial film that takes a closer look at the legislation called No Child Left Behind, the politics behind it, and a race and power struggle that spawned one of the most complex scandals in American history. Directed by the Emmy-nominated producer Jodi Gomes, the harrowing documentary brings the accused, whistleblowers, cheaters, and innocent together on film for the first time.
