A Clayton County school teacher claims administrators at one middle school allowed some teachers to download an exam just days before it was to be given.

Larry Foster called the alleged action a violation of testing policy. Foster said he cannot and said the action would have given some students an unfair advantage. However, he said, when an instructor knows exactly what is one the test, they tend to teach the lesson ahead of time.

Foster said he made an outcry but school officials did nothing.

Instead, Foster said, he became an outcast and was told to leave the school.

He had been at North Clayton Middle school and did not go quietly. Foster said administrators embarrassed him by having a uniformed school police officer escort him out of the building.

Foster has filed a lawsuit even though he was not fired. The school system reassigned him to another school. The instructor calls the reassignment punishment for speaking out.
