Following up on earlier reports, EdWeek recaps the possible misuse of federal Title I (ie, NCLB) funding by CPS and another Illionois district (Federal Audit Finds Illinois Title I Faults), and links to the report itself. The Feds want $17 million back from CPS for failing to ensure comparable services in TItle I and other schools -- mostly by charging the Feds for vacant positions. Sounds pretty sketchy to me, but I'm not sure I understand exactly how it works. Is this the rough equivalent of a no-show job? Those I understand.
