    The D.C. Inspector General confirmed a cheating scandal at Noyes Education Campus in Northeast.

    According to a report released Wednesday, teachers gave students answers to questions on standardized tests.A guidance counselor told teachers to create a seating chart with lower achieving students placed out of view of monitors so their answers could be changed, investigvators said.

    In another incident, a former teacher admitted to walking around a classroom during an exam and silently pointing to wrong answers, according to the report. That would continue until the student would land on the right answer.

    D.C. Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson called the report "disappointing" and said the staff implicated does not represent what the school system stands for.
