Former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young has come out swinging in defense of city School Superintendent Beverly Hall, who has been fielding calls for her resignation in the wake of the CRCT cheating scandal.

And how does Young explain all those erasures?
“I don’t. I don’t care. I’m not worried about the test scores. I know that everywhere I go, I find students from Atlanta public schools doing well….
“Give me subpoena power and point out any institution in the world, any institution in this city, and I can find [something] to put somebody in jail, or to raise a lot of fuss and to keep you all in the news…..”
