District's textbook procurement procedures plagued with problems

An investigation by David Andreatta, of the Democrat and Chronicle (Rochester, N.Y.), examined the textbook procurement procedure of the Rochester School District and found a wide range of problems and waste. Issues range from nearly 20,000 book going undistributed eight months into the school year to $1.4 million in secondary school books being lost by both schools and students. Another approximately 70,000 textbooks were discarded despite still being useful for classroom instruction.
