Atlanta’s Urban Regime was involved at every point in the APS cheating scandal and subsequent fall out. The Anglo-American business elites and African American political leaders cared about the image of Atlanta more than the academic well-being of the students. The business community was driving the policies affecting the school system. These policies ultimately benefitted the well-connected members of the regime. At no point did African American voters operationalize their potential political power in the 2013 city elections after the cheating scandal.
