Description

When Scottsdale Community College fired its music department chair "for purchasing expensive microphones for the college from his son, attempting to cover up the transaction and failing to show up for an electronic music class he was paid to teach," the East Valley Tribune received a tip that the teacher was only part of a bigger story. The investigation uncovered "fraud within the Maricopa County Community College District," including "a performing arts institute that enrolled its professors and clerical employees and their relatives in classes to keep itself operating." There were also major issues in the athletic department, with thousands of dollars missing. Situations such as these had been discovered previously, but the district had taken no action.
