Miami Herald's series of stories uncovers "questionable land purchases by the Miami-Dade School Districts, including a deal in which the district paid $2 million more than its own appraisal recommended..." The parcels, some of which swampy and others including archeological sites disallowing construction, have been bought for phantom programs. The stories report on the criminal investigation of the purchases, started by county prosecutors. Some of the main findings of the grand jury's report are that the school board has failed to account for overspending on the purchases, correct fire and safety violations, control runaway spending on new school construction and track allocations for building and renovation projects.
