Atlanta school cheating scandal and football eligablity

4

I don't know if you guys have payed any attention to the huge public school scandal that has been uncovered in Atlanta where a '"widespread" conspiracy by teachers, principals and administrators to fix answers on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT), punish whistle-blowers, and hide improprieties' has been uncovered. It's sure to be a huge story in the days to come. My question is what will happen to the NCAA eligibility of athletes that come from these schools? Would the NCAA pull it from every athlete that came from one of those schools? Do nothing as it was so widespread. (this thing was system wide.) Crack down on only the most obvious and easily proved cheaters? From what i've read, the cheating was tied to athletics so the kids weren't getting anything any other non-preforming student wasn't getting, so maybe the NCAA will do nothing. What do you guys think?
