Description

This investigation exposed abuse of a taxpayer-funded pre-kindergarten for poor and limited English proficiency children. The principal of one of the pre-kindergartens enrolled her own daughter in the program even though she made too much money to qualify as did thirty-four school district employees who also enrolled their children in it. Many of the schools had waiting lists with needy kids who were denied access because unqualified children were enrolled.
