Follow the Money… If You Can


The D.C. school system will have to return almost $24 million in federal funding that they had forgoten about and failed to spend. Or maybe they won't. Nobody seems terribly sure just what the heck is going on. Even if the money didn't slip through the cracks, the real revelation here seems to be that the people who nominally run the system don't appear to have any shared notion of how, exactly, that system works. Do the D.C. schools offer accounting classes? Public administration? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? (Hat tip to Chuck Karczag)
