Widespread Fraud Alleged in Camden, N.J. Schools
What began as a grade-fixing scheme in a Camden, N.J. high school is now a growing scandal, according to an August 11 story from NPR. The fixing scheme was first uncovered by Paula Veggian, a scheduler at Brimm Medical Arts High School, in 2004. However, a state investigation begun in early 2006 has since widened to include a former Superintendent and two other elementary school principals. Allegations include not only grade-fixing, but unauthorized expenses and bonuses as well. Results of the state's investigation expected any day, according to NPR.
