Summary This joint investigation with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution found that Georgia's largest school district had been undererporting student discipline incidents by more than 85 percent. A reporter's review of a database following the first year of mandatory reporting by public school districts prompted the investigation. The data from a number of school districts seemed low. Subsequent data analysis revealed the magnitude of the problem. Following the reports several state agencies opened their own investigations into the school district.
