Several students caught cheating in AP Macroeconomics

On Nov. 28, students in Humanities teacher Eleanor Barbino’s AP Macroecoenomics 7th period class were caught cheating on a test.

Although the story is developing, Barbino was allegedly tipped-off that students were cheating in her class.

Barbino declines to comment on whether or not someone tipped her off, on whether or not she found students’ phones that were incriminating or whether there was any cheating at all.

“I cannot confirm [anything],” Barbino said.

There was a meeting of AP teachers called on Thursday to discuss the situation and punishments for the students that were caught.

Principal Bill Wiesbrook sent out an email to Central faculty urging teachers to refrain from commenting on the situation.

Although the story is developing, Barbino was allegedly tipped-off that students were cheating in her class.
