Dr. Hall, who retired in 2011, was charged with racketeering, theft, influencing witnesses, conspiracy and making false statements. Prosecutors recommended a $7.5 million bond for her; she could face up to 45 years in prison.

During the decade she led the district of 52,000 children, many of them poor and African-American, Atlanta students often outperformed wealthier suburban districts on state tests.

Those test scores brought her fame in 2009, the American Association of School Administrators named her superintendent of the year and Arne Duncan, the secretary of education, hosted her at the White House.

And fortune she earned more than $500,000 in performance bonuses while superintendent.

As a society we need to reward ethical behavour a bit more than just performance. While it is good to forgive, and we all make mistakes, maybe a few more statue's of those who succeeded while behaving ethically and morally would show the young that honest living is noteworthy.

If she's guilty, she should return the $500K.
That would be really painful...... Razz
