ATLANTA, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- An ethics committee Thursday decided five Atlanta educators should lose their teaching licenses as a result of a cheating investigation.

Four of the teachers received two-year suspensions and one test coordinator's license was revoked, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Sixteen educators have had suspensions or revocations as a result of the Atlanta Public Schools cheating case.

The 10-month investigation revealed former Superintendent Beverly Hall, in her zeal to meet annual academic goals, overlooked rampant cheating, coverups and obstruction over the course of her 12-year tenure.

About 200 teachers and principals at 44 of the district's 56 schools erased and corrected errors on students' answer sheets on the 2009 Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests, the newspaper said.
