Corruption in public education

One of the reasons that public education is such a losing proposition in this country is because of corruption and cheating.  Below is a recent example from one of America's most corrupt cities.

According to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ):
"The former chief executive of the Chicago public school system will plead guilty to federal charges she received kickbacks and bribes in exchange for steering district contracts to a former employer, her lawyer said Thursday.
The indictment of Barbara Byrd-Bennett, announced by prosecutors earlier in the day, is the latest blow to the nation’s third-largest school system, which is facing a growing fiscal crisis. Ms. Byrd-Bennett resigned in late spring during the federal probe."
