ATLANTA  — Jurors are set to resume their deliberations in the trial of a dozen former Atlanta Public Schools educators accused of participating in a conspiracy to cheat on standardized tests.

The jury meeting in Atlanta is scheduled to resume its closed-door discussions on Monday morning.

A grand jury indicted 35 educators in March 2013. Many reached plea agreements with prosecutors.

Educators have said they faced pressure from supervisors to inflate standardized test scores to show gains in student achievement.
