Description

An "entrepreneurial" public school superintendent with an MPA thought he would come up with a way to prop up declining enrollment in his district and garner a bigger portion of state education dollars. The district opened a public school for home school students. The Academy exists without a classroom. The district received full funding from the state for each student enrolled in the Academy. In turn, the Academy gave parents $2,000 to buy supplies. Parents were buying religious based books, a violations of state law.
