Report: Chicago Public Schools employees involved in 'widespread fraud' in lunch program


A report from the Inspector General's office of Chicago Public Schools released Monday raises concerns that district employees were encouraged to make fraudulent applications for federal free and reduced-price lunch programs.
The IG found that district employees including principals and assistant principals engaged in "widespread, systemic fraud" in making applications for the program, revelations the office first made last year.
The IG's new report also criticized the district for not properly following up on earlier recommendations from the IG's office to provide stricter oversight of vendors and for failing to rescind a residency waiver granted to a top CPS officer.
The issue of vendor oversight came up last spring with the executive overseeing the district's food program was found to have accepted thousands of dollars in improper gifts from CPS's two largest food vendors.

This happens all over Illinois government. Its the "gibs me dat" union mentality. They learn to constantly push for more and more free shit to the point they have no concept of right and wrong. This state needs a financial enema like none other.

Ask any Chicago Public School custodian just how much food they throw out each day. When I grew up, I was taught it was a sin to throw out food. These fucking schools throw out enough food each day to feed half the damn city.

So why can't they just get a new food service contract? Oh wait, it's because they have political connections....... That's right.

Sin? What does that word mean? There's a word that hasn't been in modern vocabulary since about 1982...
