Summary "Fueled by a $980 million bond referendum, Miami-Dade County Public Schools 15 years ago launched the nation's biggest and most aggressive construction program. But the school district has busted its budget on at least 39 of 44 new schools analyzed by The Herald, or about nine out of 10 since 1988." In its five-part series, The Miami Herald found "tens of millions wasted in slow, sloppy construction", missteps in the building process, delays and poor planning.
