Even though he’s not mentioned in this article. Let’s see, he was CEO of Chicago Public Schools, and this article points out all sorts of corruption and mismanagement in CPS, no doubt just scratching the surface.
- CPS spent over a quarter million dollars to bus neighborhood kids away from one overcrowded school, while five CPS employees got six relatives into the school and scores of other people got in using false addresses.
- One HS (only one?) falsified athletes’ grades for college transcripts. Their systems are so poor they can’t even tell who did it.
- Four people were involved in skirting competitive bidding to spend $67,000 on capuccino machines for schools that didn’t want them and aren’t using them.
Arne Duncan sounds like a perfect fit for the squeaky clean Obama administration.
