This series of articles began with an examination of one school district in Dallas. The reporters found that the Wilmer-Hutchins Independent School District was riddled with problems, including shredded documents, vanishing funds, unpaid salaries, and stolen property. The Wilmer- Hutchins stories also exposed some discrepancies in state assessment test scores.
