Detroit Public Schools Teacher, Accountant Found Guilty of Money Laundering and FraudKatie Pavlich | Aug 06, 2013
In the city of Detroit, 47 percent of adults are functionally illiterate. Students in Detroit's public school system have a higher chance of going to prison than they do of graduating high school. The average teacher salary in Detroit is $71,000.
Yesterday, the FBI announced the Detroit Public Schools contract accountant and a teacher have been found guilty of money laundering, tax evasion and fraud.
But the Campbell duo aren't alone when it comes to dysfunction, corruption and bad behavior within Detroit Public Schools. Just a few years ago, now former president of the school board Otis Mathis, fondled himself during a public meeting. Naturally, his inappropriate behavior was defended by a school board colleague who argued Mathis, 55- years-old at the time, was simply a "naive young man" about appropriate behavior. All of these people are Democrats. [What a surprise, huh?]
UPDATE: Books were never provided to the schools? No wonder Detroit kids, and adults, can't read.
