KMOV-TV looks into the state of the public schools in the East St. Louis area, finding that they are not providing an education that meets state and federal standards. Among the issues are: a shortage of special-education teachers, a lack of at-home teachers, the fact East St. Louis is one of five public school districts (of 900 total in the state) that are on state academic probation, friends and relatives being hired for security, secretarial and custodial jobs and a high number of managers without teacher certifications, administrators taking expensive trips for seminars on taxpayer dollars.
