The state Department of Education has forced a former principal at Philadelphia Military Academy and a one-time teacher at John Welsh Elementary to surrender their professional credentials in connection with a test-cheating scandal involving the School District of Philadelphia.
The credentials were surrendered last month, and the disciplinary actions were posted Tuesday on the department's website.
The department alleges that as principal at the military school, Robert L. Manning violated the integrity and security of the state's standardized tests by failing "to investigate and report allegations of testing improprieties . . .," and attempted to hinder a subsequent investigation.
The department said Michael A. Reardon, who taught at Welsh, allegedly engaged in multiple PSSA testing administration violations.
