Education Secretary On GA Cheating

(CNN)--Education Secretary Arne Duncan calls a cheating scandal in the Atlanta public schools an "unfortunate incident."

A Georgia state investigation found teachers and school leaders erased wrong answers on standardized tests.

And that made the schools look like they were doing better than they actually were.

Duncan said they can only figure out how students are progressing with accurate information.

In a statement, he said "there are no shortcuts to success."

The former superintendent of Atlanta's schools says, she didn't know about the cheating.
