ATLANTA (AP) — Former Atlanta schools Superintendent Beverly Hall is apologizing to the people of Atlanta and their children for "any shortcomings," but says educators involved in the district's cheating scandal bear the "moral responsibility."

Hall's comments came in a statement released Friday by her attorney. The comments were first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and follow this week's release of a state investigation that revealed cheating in nearly half the district's 100 schools. It also concluded Hall either knew or should have known about the cheating, which her attorney denies.

Hall pointed in the statement to an anonymous hotline that she established for ethics complaints, but acknowledged that it "now appears that our efforts and procedures were not enough."

The recently retired Hall also defended the district's academic progress, saying the cheating doesn't take away from the work of students and the majority of teachers.
