Narrator Lisa Renee Pitts channels the author's outrage at this true story of prosecutorial and judicial overreach. The allegations in the 2013 Atlanta schools cheating scandal were shocking enough--that teachers and administrators had plotted to change standardized test answers to make it appear that students performed better than they actually did. Educators went to prison over this--a few were sentenced to 20 years. Author Shani Robinson is one of the convicted. She maintains her innocence and develops a convincing argument that the real cheats are the ones who grab public school funding for other purposes and who develop spurious measures for teacher performance. Pitts's narration is excellent. She maintains a tone of genuine disbelief and wonder at the situation. Her narration enhances this story of ignoble events.
