Federal investigators revealed another blow to Detroit Public Schools this week. Meet Carolyn StarkeyDarden – the system’s former grant-development director – who has just been charged on suspicion of obtaining nearly $1.3 million by lying about children’s tutoring services. As The Burning Platform’s Jim Quinn rages, this is called the “No School Administrator Left Behind” Program.
As CNN reports, Carolyn StarkeyDarden set up a company and allegedly ran a scheme between 2005 and 2012 in which she submitted fake invoices for tutoring services that were never provided to students, according to charges filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Michigan’s Eastern District.
