INVESTIGATION AT CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS RE WIRED SOLE SOURCE CONTRACTS ESCALATES WITH FEDERAL PROBE

The legacy of wasted spending by Chicago's Mayoral appointed school board results in $20 Million sole source contract gifted to company that formerly employed Barbara Byrd-Bennett and her cronies. Despite complaints regarding allegations of sub-standard training for principals, the board had voted unanimously to approve the contract. It is surprising that there was no internal investigation into these complaints prior to the Federal probe just announced.

Corruption Busters has an ongoing investigation into the waste of millions of taxpayer funds by CPS to award sole source outside legal fees to politically connected law firms for work that could be provided by internal staff. CPS has a General Counsel, James Bebley, whose sole function apparently is to approve invoices from these firms.

We call upon the Feds to expand their probe to investigate these additional sole source contracts.

CONTINUED STUDENT VIOLENCE PLAGUES WAUKEGAN PUBLIC SCHOOLS 

Batiste & Lamping fail to curb in-school student attacks, instead threatening staff with retaliation for reporting these incidents that endanger students and district personnel.

In response to our on-going investigation, Corruption Busters was contacted today regarding a violent altercation at the Brookside Campus involving up to 8 students resulting in allegations of an attack on a student with a lock that caused injury.

WPS60 Unofficial School Board Election Results 4-7-2015

Three corrupt incumbents voted out of office.

Congrats to the winners.
Your new responsibilities include restoring fiscal and educational integrity to Waukegan.

We suggest that the board vote to remove Anita Hanna as President and also insure that her sweet-heart deal to get free rent and use of a WPS60 School building for her family day camp business not be renewed at taxpayer expense.

We also encourage the new board to fully scrutinize the cronyism regime of Batiste & Lamping, put a stop to their spending & personal gain and commence setting the foundation for searching for a new Superintendent who will make Waukegan proud.

WHERE IS DR. DONALDO BATISTE, SUPERINTENDENT WPS60, AS CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES RUN RAMPANT AT JEFFERSON MIDDLE SCHOOL?

Last week the Assistant Principal (Nichole Farris) of Miguel Juarez Middle School of Waukegan removed her daughter from Thomas Jefferson Middle School stating the building is too dangerous. 

Remember Theresa Anderson, Principal at Jefferson? Click here for our previous post on October 26, 2014.  Apparently, Anderson has lost control of the school and has again illustrated that she is fully unqualified to maintain a proper and safe learning environment. 

Breaking News....WPS60 engages in cover up to conceal underage drinking, drug use, fights, weapons assaults on students with blades, forcible hair cutting and fireworks in the cafeteria. 

In the past few weeks Waukegan Police have responded to numerous incidents where students and teachers' physical safety are at risk. We invite the good citizens of Waukegan to request copies of these incident reports from the Police Department to validate the veracity of these claims.

Here is the content of an email authored by Anderson to the staff:
