Report finds Chicago Public Schoolteachers Smoked Weed, Stole Money

Corruption is strong in Chicago, so why be surprised by this report [1]?

Chicago Public Schools employees engaged in improper political activity, stole kids’ museum passes to sell online, smoked marijuana with students, and stole money meant for cheerleader uniforms, according to a year-long review.

The school system’s inspector general released its annual report [2] on Monday. The report offers a summary of investigations conducted by the inspector general in fiscal year 2015, which included the uncovering of a multi-million-dollar fraudulent kickback scheme [3] by Barbara Byrd-Bennett, the school system’s CEO

The inspector general also found that teachers abused their access to make tax-exempt purchases for big-screen televisions, iPads, and DVD boxed sets of The Three Stooges.
