Gale Holland will tell how the Los Angeles Times used public records, confidential sources and computer-assisted reporting to expose shoddy construction, reckless spending and pay-to-play contracting in a $5.7 billion community college construction program. Erica Perez will talk about
documents and databases you can use to help hold colleges and universities accountable. Suzanne McBride will discuss how students working for ChicagoTalks uncovered irregularities in a century-old, state-funded legislative scholarship program and problems with the way Illinois schools have implemented a campus security law.
