Is there a way of determining if this situation had gone on for years before this particular administrator was in charge? Doesn't the public deserve to know?

"Since 2005, more than 900 teachers violated rules aimed at making sure children get proper educations, including 62 who worked with no license at all, according to the newspaper's analysis of state education records." So these teachers just walked in off the street and started teaching? Or...maybe they were hired by an administrator either trying to fill niche positions or save money. How about "Administrators violated rules by hiring unlicensed teachers..." to place the blame where it belongs.

What a joke. MPS gets caught and investigates itself. How much was spent on this so called MPS investigation ?

Why do the kids need to attend a saturday class because of the schools screw up? I think the kids need a little representation here as well. The young mothers involved have better things to do on a saturday than play administrative games.

Doesn't the public deserve to know? __ Probably has, but since when is this a viable excuse? If you are put in charge and you know this is wrong you need to fix it. Even my kids know that just because everyone else does it doesn't make it right.

Please do an article on the nine million $ accounting disrepancy that is leading to the layoff of a lot of literacy coaches next year in MPS. Our school PTA just learned of this, and i'm amazed it hasn't gotten any press. How does a district repeatedly misplace millions??
