JACKSON, Miss.-- The story that started to grow legs about teachers in the mid-south states of Mississippi, Arkansas, and Tennesee has gotten bigger Tuesday morning.
Six Mississippi teachers have been named in the PRAXIS test-taking scheme that cops say Clarance Mumford Sr., a Memphis native, is said to have been the leader.
The quick rundown of teachers according to the Clarion-Ledger now facing charges in Mississippi:
- Jadice Moore of Port Gibson Middle School
- Kimberly Taylor of Charleston Middle School
- Samuel Campbel of Jim Hill High School
- Darcel Gardner of Columbus High School
- Carlo McClelland of Meridian High School
- Sarah Richards from Richland, Miss.
Mississippi Department of Education spokesperson Patrice Guilfoyle said, "At this point we don't know the exact impact of the number of teachers in Mississippi."
What News Mississippi wanted to know was what would happen to teacher if they were indeed charged, like the present situation.
"The dept is cooperating wiith investigation to provide any information requested from the authorities [on the matter]. No action is taken against the teacher license though unless the teacher is convicted."
And that indeed could take time with the judicial system but this seems to be the tip of the ice berg for what could be coming in regards the case.
